If you watch the fireworks from the water, your watercraft of choice (boat, kayak, canoe, paddleboard, paddleboat, etc…) MUST have front and rear lights for everyone’s safety. 

All water traffic must stay a safe distance from the dam for obvious safety reasons. Please visualize a line between Bill & Gloria Wuthrich’s and Bob Basham & Jane Kieler’s boat docks.
