Fourth of July along the Emerald Coast in Florida

The Emerald Coast has some of the most beautiful beachfront in all of Florida.  Soft, white sand and clear, cool waters make this not only a great vacation spot, but a great place to live as well.  Imagine looking out onto a sun-shimmered ocean everyday from your Emerald Coast home.  Combine this everyday beauty with a dazzling day of fireworks, and you have Fourth of July weekend.

If you haven’t made plans for Independence Day yet, no worries – there’s still plenty of time.  Leading up to the big day, HarborWalk Village will transform into New Orleans on July 3rd at 7:00pm.  There will be a parade with extravagant floats, Cajun-style cooking, live musical entertainment, and lots of beads – all staying true to “The Big Easy”.

After “Pardi Gras”, you can return to HarborWalk Village for the Fourth of July Extravaganza on the Harbor.  From 6:30 – 9:30pm on July 4th there will be a hot dog eating contest, live music on the main stage, family activities with contests and giveaways, and a spectacular fireworks display over the water.

For a change in scenery, check out the Annual Fourth of July Celebration at Fort Walton Beach.  From 4pm – 10pm, this event will include entertainment, food and merchandise vendors, a bicycle parade for children, a fly-over, children’s games and activities, and much more.  At 9:15pm, the fun-filled day will be concluded with a celebratory show of fireworks.

If you would like something a little more cozy and comfortable, come over to Destin Beach for some patriotic pyrotechnics over the East Pass at 9pm.  This annual fireworks show will be hosted by AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar, the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce, and Z96.
