The skies above Lake Travis will burst with explosions of light and boom with the patriotic rumble of fireworks during the annual Fourth of July party at Shore Club Volente Beach. The family-friendly event is open to the public and has become the most exciting way to celebrate Independence Day in the Greater Austin and Hill Country area. According to past attendees, it's also the most spectacular fireworks display anywhere on the lake.
The celebration kicks off at 6pm, when the beach opens for visitors who bring their own blankets and chairs and pick a spot to lounge in the balmy breezes, watch the sun go down over the water, then stay for the fireworks show at dusk. Beach access is $10 per person. Tickets are available online.
For the VIP treatment, seating on the Shore Club patio is available for the first 200 guests lucky enough to get reservations in time. The price is $25 per person and includes a Tex-Mex Fajita Buffet meal and live music, plus a great view of the fireworks. Kids under 13 years are $15. Live entertainment features Ralphie G & DJ Madness. Advance reservations are required and can be made by calling (512) 258-5110.
Known as a great venue for private parties, company picnics and corporate events, Shore Club Volente Beach is also home to Volente Beach Water Park, a favorite summertime spot for families to enjoy some fun in the sun and the thrill of a water-based theme park. Attractions include three waterslides, Pirate Ship pool, Lazy Lagoon, sandy beach, Sidewinder water coaster, boat/WaveRunner rentals, picnic areas (bring your cooler, but no alcohol) and a swim-up Tiki Bar that offers the resort-style party setting of Cancun and Jamaica, with a laid-back Lake Travis vibe and Hill Country charm. The water park is open 11am to 7pm and entry is $17.99 for adults, $15.99 for kids. Access to the beach to watch the fireworks is free with paid attendance at the water park on the day of the show.
The Beach Bar & Grill serves burgers, sandwiches, steaks and seafood to hungry diners, fresh from a day of water-skiing and boating, or just escaping the hustle and bustle of the city for a taste of lake-side relaxation. Happy Hour is a hit each Wednesday to Friday and live bands are featured on the weekends.
For a real getaway, Shore Club Volente Beach even operates two lakefront vacation rentals, with the convenience of a hotel, but the seclusion and freedom of your own private lake house.
Doors open for the July 4th Party at 6pm. Fireworks display starts at dusk. Shore Club Volente beach is located on the shores of Lake Travis at 16107 FM 2769 in Volente, Texas. The venue can be accessed by car or boat, even with the lower lake levels.
