Celebrate another year of American freedom by taking in a fireworks show with friends and family. Start a new tradition or check out a new spot every year. We’ve got some great options nearby, whether you want something beachfront or less sandy.
Jacksonville Suns. Each year the Jacksonville Suns play a home game and host a night of patriotic celebration of the 4th of July. Celebrate with your family or grab a few friends and watch the ballgame and fireworks.
Jacksonville Landing. Enjoy the new Riverwalk and watch the fireworks from the Landing. Use the nearby parking garages and have an early dinner before sundown at one the downtown restaurants. You can also park across the river and take the ferry.
Jacksonville Beach. Watch the sunset and enjoy fireworks on the Jacksonville Beach Pier.
Fireworks on the Matanzas. Enjoy dinner at one of the great St. Augustine options and stay near the historic riverfront. Starting at 6 p.m., the popular local band The All Star Orchestra will perform a two-hour show of big band and swing music along with patriotic favorites. The concert is free and open to the public, and everyone is encouraged to bring lounge chairs for seating. The fireworks begin at 9:30 p.m.
Have a safe 4th of July.
