Default 2020 4th Fireworks

Please post any info on fireworks events around the lake hereóI'm thinking with some towns cancelling, it'll be more private displays.

Thanks!

Hoping the lakefront pyrotechnics will makeup for the lack of town sponsored events this season

Default Weirs

Probably old news but I noticed yesterday that the Weirs entire 2020 season has been cancelled. This will be different for us since we are across the bay from there with a direct view. There's been a great and noticeable effort to improve the displays as well and last year's early season fireworks competition between towns was a great event (was that last year or the year before???).

It's easy to see how COVID would cause the cancellation. Not only to discourage close contact but I suspect contributions for the displays would be hard to secure given the COVID business impacts.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!! That's awesome although I would not put it past the city of Laconia to shut it down. With so many fireworks displays not happening this year it is sure to be a big draw.

I agree, although the not sure how the city could shut it down... If the Guy that own Tiki boats of NH, allows them to be set off from his property, and he "paying for them for his enjoyment" ..... then there really isn't ground for the city to do something, unless the "claim" its in the name of public safety...

Bottom line, this could be a litigious nightmare...

Has anybody heard where they will be launched from? Land? Barge? Trying to figure out a good place to view by boat
