Thunder over Cedar Creek Air Show

This is one of the biggest highlights of the year at Cedar Creek!  Bring your boat and head down to the Pinnacle Peak area and watch fighter jets, military aircraft and fireworks from the middle of the lake.  This event is held the Saturday before the 4th of July each year and the lake house rentals are always at 100% capacity, so book early!  There is no celebration around as special and unique as this one!
