Lake Businesses Looking Forward To Fourth of July

LAKE TEXOMA -- Marinas and other lake businesses are hoping for a big week with Independence Day back near a weekend this year.

Usually July 4 falls near a weekend, but last year it was Wednesday. This year, it's on Thursday so they're hoping for more visitors.

After last week's blue-green algae test, the Oklahoma state Tourism and Recreation website says some areas are a concern for swimming, but the Grayson County Health Department disagrees.

Near Pottsboro, there is road construction on Highway 289 north of Fink, but F.M. 406 is now done.

Several fireworks celebrations are planned, including Sherman on July 3 and Denison, Durant, and Ardmore (Lake Murray) on July 4. For more information, click the Celebrations link.
