Some even take pictures and videos of the fireworks.
There's also some mixed emotions about the fact that people can set off fireworks here at the lake.
Nat every year people bring illegal fireworks like these.
Nats to set off over the lake.
Lynn fuller they've been going on for a long time.

She also has some concerns.
Lynn fuller things catching on fire and people not picking up their mess.
Josh sabota every year we have our 3 or 4 rangers that help patrol.
This year i believe the josphine county sheriffs and thei llinois valley fire district, odf usual has a few guys out there as well to help us patrol it.
Josh sabota is the lead park ranger for josephine county parks.
He tells me this year any illegal fireworks that are found will be confisgated.
That person could also recieve a citation.
Some people wonder why the county allows fireworks at the lake at all?
Josh sabota if we don't have a safe spot to put them they are just going to go else where and do them at their houses, back of dead end roads or in the mountains and it could become bigger liability.
Lynn fuller if we can have people come out and do it in the water, professionally then i think it would be ok.
If you are setting up fireworks at the lake or anywhere this year.
Make sure to have water to put out the fireworks or fires.
