Your Neighbors, Your Council!
For nearly 40 years a group of patriotic citizens of Lago Vista have put forth their efforts to bring a 4th of July celebration to the North Shore of Lake Travis that rivals Austin firework shows. From droughts to floods and other challenges the celebration has continued. In 1993, the Lago Vista 4th of July Council was formed and in 1998 we became an official 501 C-3 non-profit organization. We continue to organize this wonderful event today. We invite you to learn more about the history of our 4th July Celebration and the Lago Vista 4th of July Council, Inc., its members and how we rely on the generosity of our non-profit organizations, business and residents to make sure that every year we are able to join as friends and neighbors and gape in awe at the splendor of our fireworks
