How the Lake Eola swans deal with Fireworks at the Fountain

in Orlando News & Events


ORLANDO, Fla. – More than 50 swans call Lake Eola Park home, but the park also happens to host the biggest Fourth of July fireworks show in Orlando.

So how do our beloved swans feel about the 959-blast, 20-minute fireworks show?

According to city of Orlando officials, the swans are very accustomed to the fireworks display and typically find hiding places around the lake if they need them.

To ease the burden for the swans, guests can bring leafy greens or purchase swan feed from the feeders around the park. The funds from the feeders go back to the swans to cover the costs of their veterinary care and heath checkups, according to the city.
