Celebrate America with Crosslake


The City of Crosslake along with the Brainerd Lakes Chamber have put together a show that is going to blow you away! With a phenomenal fireworks show planned over Sand Island on the south end of Cross Lake, there is just no limit to the views. You'll be speechless from the breathtaking colors and lights over the water, and from the streamline of boats. We hope to see you there on land or water!

Best viewing spots from land:

  • From the bridge by The Wharf Restaurant on County Road 16

  • The beach at the Army Corps of Engineers Park in downtown Crosslake

  • From the dam in Crosslake next to the Army Corps of Engineers Park

Or launch your boat and watch them from the water. It is spectacular!
