Fort Lauderdale Independence Day Fireworks

On Independence Day, Fort Lauderdale turns into a wild party mecca. Thousands of people come to the city for the unique “4th of July Spectacular” celebration. Let’s see what’s in store for visitors this year!


"4th of July Spectacular" is held on Fort Lauderdale Beach, which allows for tons of various activities for any age. Children can hang out in the kids’ zone, playing games, doing crafts, and chunking on snacks. The kids’ zone also includes water slides, face-painting isles, bounce houses, and a huge dedicated area for all sorts of contests.

Adults, in their turn, have an even wider choice of entertainment options. For example, they can listen to incredible live music at a patriotic-themed concert, dance the evening away to amazing local DJs’ performances, attend one of the many food booths with savory snacks, sit by the bonfire, or go for a swim.


After all the daytime fun is over, it’s time to move on to the most important part of the event—the firework display, scheduled at 8:45 pm. The show kicks off right after the sunset and lasts for at least half an hour. This pyrotechnic performance is what brings children and adults together in a truly spectacular nighttime experience.

Tickets & Accommodation

4th of July Spectacular is free of charge, so everybody is welcome to join the event. However, you may want to grab some cash to pay for food, drinks, and other non-free stuff. In addition, we suggest booking your accommodation in advance as Fort Lauderdale is very busy on Independence Day.
