It's America's Birthday! Join in the parties and the celebrations, the 4th of July has long been a family tradition...
...The hot dogs and barbeques, outdoor concerts, fairs, picnics,
parades, cruises and a myriad of activities which all culminate with a brilliant splash over the city skies.
The 4th of July fireworks in Miami are spectacular, watching the sky lit up above the water in a stunning array of
colors and sparks is a mind-blowing and affecting way to end the day, a stirring reflection of what our country stands for.
Of course this year's celebrations may be taking place in a different format. Even though the city's highlight event at Bayfront Park and fireworks display over Biscayne Bay has been cancelled this year, there are plenty of smaller scale celebrations throughout Miami and Miami Beach. Stay tuned for any updates and be sure to check latest status of the events before you head out as last minute changes may occur. Many of the fireworks events and celebrations that had been previously planned have been cancelled out of respect for the victims of the Surfside condo collapse, their families and friends. Please double-check with organizers before you head out to any event.
Independence Day is of course a public holiday.
Federal government offices are closed on the 4th of July, National parks remain open.
You can expect the following to
be open and closed during the holiday:
Shopping centers and malls
Federal, State, Regional Parks
Public Transportation, check for special holiday schedules
