Fourth of July Weekend at Lake Okoboji

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

The weekend of the 4th of July at Lake Okoboji is a pretty serious party weekend. There were still many, many people out on the water as sunset came on. My cousin who is from the area, took me around to a couple of the hot spots in the Lake Okoboji region. Had a lot of fun.

  • Did anyone see a mysterious dark grey or black flying object over West Lake Okoboji about 14 minutes before the fireworks started on the 4th of July?
