It is truly a moving experience the only draw back is the short time of the show 20 min and the traffic.

The fireworks for the Labor Day weekend rivaled anything I have seen. Being from New Jersey and the east coast, I have seen my fair share. These were Fantastic!

We saw the Fireworks from Riva Restaurant! What a firework spectacular! I've seen fireworks all over the country and these were top notch and one of the best we've ever seen!!! Fabulous!

The Labor Day Weekend fireworks over Lake Tahoe are without any question just plain amazing. The light show will bring oohs and aahs out of all ages. It can get a bit crowded down by the beach...I suggest finding a second story building that faces the lake.

Outstanding! Best fireworks of the year for me! We had a wonderful view from Riva Grill. The colors of some of the fireworks were really amazing.

We saw it from the El Dorado Beach. Great show, top notch firework trickery on display right on the beautiful lake tahoe. Parking can be hard to find so come early.

They choreograph their firework show to music played on a local station. It really ads to the show. Get to the beach EARLY and stake out your spot. BUSY BUSY BUSY !!! Be prepared for massive crowds along the shoreline.

awesome show, good crowd other than those who at last minute sat in front of us early arrivals. Needed porta chem toilets at Timber Cove pier beach...Be polite and move gently as you depart. Dress with reflective apparel for dark walk across highway after the show. Carpool, walk a longer distance or ride bus to avoid gridlock and slow exit.

They are always voted best 4th of July show west of the Mississippi. You can go to any of the beaches on the South Shore but if you walk to the beach just down from the casinos and Heavenly Village you will need to get a pass to the private beach from the motel you are staying at. All of... More

Hundreds and hundreds of people flocked to the beach area. Easier to walk there if you are not getting there hours before the show. The show was nice and long, with many big displays. Very controlled crowd.
