LAKE OF THE OZARKS, Mo. -- Fireworks enthusiasts look no further. It's Fourth of July Weekend at Lake of the Ozarks. Perhaps no where in the world offers boaters a more explosive experience. 

Traditionally, The Lodge of Four Seasons and Tan-Tar-A have been the staple hot spots. But in recent years new players have come with impressive shows.

Word on the water is that Bear Bottoms may be taking the crown for pyrotechnics. But this year, it's unlikely Captain Ron's will be outdone and New this year, Iguana Fireworks is shooting off a display that promises to wow crowds at Beavers at the Dam. There's just something historically cool about fireworks over the Bagnell Dam.Where ever boaters cruise to take in the grandiose bombardments, it's the ride home that's perhaps the most fun. Once the post-display rough waters subside, the captain takes the long way home, serenaded all night long by thousands of mini celebrations along Lake of the Ozarks' 1,000 miles of shoreline.  It'll put a smile on anyone's face.If you have not done it, it's bucket list time
