Can you believe September is already here? Where did summer even go?!

If you’re not into summer heat and bustling crowds, there is no better time than fall to head to the Lake of the Ozarks.

Fall festivals. Jacket weather. S’mores and reminiscing over a campfire. The changing leaves. Gold. Red. Orange. Brown. Beautiful.

This month, there are several events you’ll want to check out, including:

  • 14th Annual Fall Festival in Osage Beach
  • Iguana Fireworks at Iguana Cove on September 11th
  • Grand Opening of Pickleheads Roadhouse September 11th – 14th
  • BIKEFEST 2014!
  • 45th Annual Laurie Hillbilly Fair

Fireworks at the Lake of the Ozarks

The Fourth of July at the Lake of the Ozarks just isn’t complete without seeing fireworks. FunLake.com put together 16 different places you can go to check out the fireworks display. Click here for times, locations, and details.

Eat Ribs, Support a Good Cause

Even though all of our vacation rental homes are stocked with all the pots and pans you need to whip up a wonderful meal, you don’t want to be cooking the entire weekend. The Gravois Firefighter Association will have “Ribs to Go” on July 2, 3, and 4 in Laurie. Get your tickets in advance while they last with a donation of $20 each. Call 573-374-4442 for details. You must have a ticket before you pick up the ribs. Pick up your order at Gravois Fire Station 215 HWY in Laurie. All Proceeds go to Missouri Children’s Burn Camp. Help send a kid to camp!

Fourth of July Events Around the Lake

Aside from fireworks, there’s a whole lot going on in and around the lake over Independence Day weekend. Click here for a more comprehensive list of events.
