What about rain?

Where should I park?
• Parking is available at Lakeside Park, Johnson Park, and Falls Creek Skate Park. Handicapped parking is at the Lakeside Pavilion. Be prepared to walk a short distance from your parking spot to Lakeside Park.
Can I watch from my boat?
• Yes. Keep in mind that the fireworks will be launched from a barge on Lake Marble Falls to the west of Lakeside Park. Barriers will be placed across the lake on both sides of the barge beginning around 8 p.m. Boaters from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. will not be permitted to cross the barge from one side of Lake Marble Falls to the other.
Is there an area to see the bands and fireworks that is easily accessible for mobility impaired individuals?
• Yes! As a matter of fact, the patio at the Lakeside Pavilion will be open for mobility impaired individuals to watch the bands and the fireworks show. You will also find handicapped parking at the pavilion as well.
Should I leave the show early to beat the traffic?
• No — We don't want you to miss the grand finale!
As you can imagine, there is usually heavy traffic immediately following the fireworks show. This year, however, Red Carpet Chaos will be playing again AFTER the fireworks show in hopes that many will stick around and the traffic will not be as congested. Marble Falls police officers will be directing traffic as needed.
