DowntownFrom 5 pm until 10 pm, the St. Johns River in Downtown Jacksonville will transform into a glistening stage for tons of fireworks, live music, and more. The annual Fourth of July Celebration Downtown includes live performances, family-friendly activities, food and drinks, and fireworks over the river. For revelers who are 21 and up, Jacksonville Landing will be hosting live music with drink specials throughout the evening. The main downtown fireworks will begin at 9:45 pm. You can see the display from the Riverwalk on either side of the St. Johns. Friendship Fountain is another one of our favorite viewing locations (bring a chair from home and find a good spot). For information about events, times, parking, and more, visit the event website.
The BeachesWant to feel the sand between your toes as you watch the fireworks this year? Then pack a blanket or a few chairs and head to Jacksonville Beach for the annual fireworks show. The fireworks are deployed from the Jacksonville Beach Fishing Pier and it’s really easy to see this display from just about any point on the beach. Make it a date by enjoying a late night dinner at North Beach Fish Camp and pop across the street afterward to watch the sky light up. Or grab a drink at The Penthouse Lounge at Casa Marina and enjoy the show from there.
Riverside Arts MarketJust a short walk from downtown, under the Fuller Warren Bridge, the Riverside Arts Market is hosting their annual Independence Day Party & Fireworks Viewing. The evening will include music, local food and family-friendly fun. Here are easy directions on how to get there.
