Some of the best 4th of July activities in Florida happen right here, and our condos in Panama City Beach put you right near the biggest and most exciting events, so you never miss a minute. Here are the top 3 Independence Day celebrations in the area.

Fireworks in Panama City Beach Florida

Freedom Rocks – July 3

Come to the Grand Lagoon for Freedom Rocks on July 3. Get there early to have a fantastic meal at any of the participating waterfront restaurants, so you can enjoy your dinner with a view! After you eat, stroll along the Grand Lagoon Bridge or find the perfect spot along the lawn at the Treasure Island Marina. The main event kicks off at 9 p.m. when you can experience one-of-a-kind fireworks show expertly coordinated with a music simulcast. This spectacular celebration is the perfect way to kick off your Independence Day weekend with a bang!

Star Spangled Spectacular – July 4

On the evening of July 4, make your way to M.B. Miller County Pier for the Star Spangled Spectacular. This pier, along with the identical Russell-Fields City Pier, makes the ideal location to watch the biggest fireworks display on the Gulf Coast! The fireworks show begins at 9 p.m., but you’re welcome to spend the whole day at the pier fishing, watching the beautiful water, or strolling down to Pier Park for some shopping and dining.

Light Up the Gulf – July 5

Finally, finish off your weekend at Boardwalk Beach Resort Hotel and Convention Center with their Light Up the Gulf Fireworks Show. The surrounding area is full of places for you to spend the day, so you can find a souvenir at Alvin’s Island or grab a sweet treat from Hershey’s Beach Ice Cream Shop. As the soon settles, head back to the resort to take your place for the 8:30 fireworks show. This spectacular event is the perfect way to bring your celebrations to a close.
