Operation Dry Water is a national weekend of Boating Under the Influence (BUI) detection and enforcement aimed at reducing the number of alcohol and drug-related accidents and fatalities and fostering a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol and drug use on the water. Operation Dry Water is held the last weekend in June prior to the Fourth of July holiday. In 2010, marine law enforcement organizations from all 50 states participated and contacted 66,472 boaters and issued 11,693 warnings and citations.

SUNDAY, July 3rd patriotic music will play as fireworks light up the sky throughout Cargile Creek on Lake Mitchell as we celebrate America's Independence this year! This event is provided by Lake Mitchell HOBO owners and originator Jimmy McCormick.
The show begins at 9pm and spectators are encouraged to come early to secure a spot for their boat on Cargile Creek. "We have a lot of people who watch from the shore, and you can even see the lights from the roads around the lake", McCormick II says. All of the fireworks will reach heights of about 300 to 600 feet, and we have monster speakers set up so that everyone can hear the patriotic music we play during the show.
The Pyro crew will spend 10-11 hours in advance setting up the show for many friends and family to share this moment of celebration to remember our American Independence.
When coming from interstate I-65, take the Lake Mitchell exit, and then take County Road 28 until it dead-ends at Higgins Ferry Park. Boaters may access Lake Mitchell from Higgins Ferry boat ramp to boat over to Cargile Creek.
We are grateful to continue past three decades of bringing family and friends together as we scatter vibrant colors of independence among the acres of Cargile Creek and main channel of Lake Mitchell.

Location: Higgins Ferry Park Boat Ramp

Are you an avid Personal Watercraft (PWC) rider, or do you know someone who is? If you are interested in spending eight days cruising 600 miles on the Tennessee River and raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, then this is the place for you!

To find out what the Tennessee River 600 is really all about (and no, it is not a race), check out our About Us page. If you don’t have enough time in your schedule to join us for the entire trip, check out our 2011 itinerary (we will have the 2012 itinerary available as the event gets closer) and consider joining us for just a day or two. Hopefully, we’ll see you on the water!
