4th July Celebrations

I am visting Gulf Coast from 2 July, staying in Bradenton. This is the first time I will have been able to witness 4th July celebrations in USA and was looking for some tips on where to go in the Sarasota/St Petersburg area to get the most out of it.

There is a wonderful fireworks display in downtown Sarasota on July 4th. Lots of fun

Post on the Tampa or St. Pete forums for ideas up in those areas.

Do they also still have the Offshore races that week? Lots of excitement at St. Armond's! No need to go to Tampa. Sarasota has a great 4th of July!

Take a look at this link:


Looks like a lot is happening in and around Sarasota starting 27th June. Unfortunately we will just miss everything. We leave for home 27th June

There is a big fireworks display on Siesta Key Public Beach, you have to get there very early and spend the day at the beach in order to get a parking spot. You could arrive early with a cooler and lunch and BBQ at one of the grills or go to the beach for the day, walk up the beach to Siesta Village for dinner and return for the fireworks.
