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!

Upcoming Events at the Lake of the Ozarks in October

A few weeks ago, we wrote about some of the “you don’t want to miss out” events at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Here are a few to add to your list in case you’re coming down to visit!

FREE 65th Anniversary Concert at Bridal Cave | Thursday, October 17th: Bridal Cave is one of the Lake of the Ozarks’ true treasures. Centuries ago the Osage Native American Indians discovered the pristine beauty that lies beneath Thunder Mountain. Local folklore tells of a legendary Native American Indian wedding ceremony held in the cave in the early 1800s. If THAT hasn’t got your attention, the live music will be Seven Bridges Road, the PREMIERE Eagles tribute band. For more information, check out the flyer for the event here.

5K Walk for World Sight Challenge 2013 | Sunday, October 27th: Head on over to the Laurie Fairgrounds for this World Sight Day, the largest annual global fundraising campaign to address avoidable blindness caused by uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and glasses. The event is hosted by Family Eyecare Associates. To participate, all you need to pay is a $25 registration, which gets you a commemorative t-shirt, food and prizes!
