Town of Mammoth Lakes to host 2021 Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular at Crowley Lake
The Town of Mammoth Lakes in partnership with Crowley Lake Fish Camp is extremely proud to bring back the Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular to Crowley Lake on Sunday, July 4, 2021. The Independence Day fireworks show promises to be a bright and striking display of color in the Eastern Sierra night sky. This year’s custom designed “Sky Concert” will propel over 851 shells into the Eastern Sierra sky for a mesmerizing 17 minutes beginning at approximately 9:15 p.m. (weather permitting). The show will simulcast live on KMMT 106.5 – tune in and enjoy! The Town of Mammoth Lakes would like to acknowledge L.D.C. and Mono County Community Services Area 1 for their generous donations and long-standing support of this generational community event at Crowley Lake.
