The July 4th Maxine Sherman Memorial Annual Fireworks display presented at Wigeon Bay in Clearlake Oaks every year is a cherished tradition in this area. Maxine Sherman was a CLOGBA member who was convinced of the importance of putting on this yearly display and worked hard to make that happen. She lobbied the community relentlessly and put on numerous fund-raisers to support it. CLOGBA members eventually voted to name the event after her. Maxine died December 26, 1999, but her legacy lives on in the annual fiery explosions in the sky she so loved over the community she worked so hard for. Thanks, Maxine.
The fireworks are launched from a barge on the lake near the Clearlake Oaks public launch ramp beginning at dusk. The best (and most fun) viewing area is from a boat, anchored east of Rattlesnake Island. No boat? Next best viewing area is from Clarks Island. Island Drive will be closed to vehicle traffic to/from Highway 20 during the fireworks show.
The annual Clearlake Oaks - Glenhaven July 4th fireworks display is completely funded by donations from our communites and fund raising events sponsored by the Business Association. Your donation to help make this event successful will be gratefully accepted.
