Who will have Clear Lake's best fireworks?
The Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Fourth of July fireworks display over the lake is no more.
"There are so many other displays on the lake that that's why the chamber has decided to step away," said spokeswoman Febe Menendez. "Rather, we'll support the other fireworks shows instead of competing with them."
The chamber's display of fireworks launched from a barge has for years been the big draw on the Fourth, enough to clog roads around the the lake. Last year, however, the show over Clear Lake drew complaints from some, including Bay Area Houston blogger John Coby, who asked, "Clear Lake fireworks a dud?" Several people posted comments expressing their dissatisfaction with the view from Clear Lake Park, traditionally the area's fireworks epicenter.
So where are firework fans going to get their fix now? This year's July 4 displays include:
Kemah Boardwalk at 9:30 p.m. The fireworks will be released on a barge from Bayside and last about 20 minutes.
Nassau Bay at 9 p.m. The fireworks will be released at the peninsula and will be best viewed from the lake at Nassau Park.
Webster at 9:15 p.m. The fireworks go up at Texas Avenue Park, by Clear Lake Regional Hospital.
