Fourth of July Celebrations Perfect for the Whole Family

July 01, 2019

In true Floridian spirit, Independence Day in Fort Myers Beach is full of fun, sun, and red, white, and blue! To start, you and your party can join the community in cheering on the Independence Day Parade. This annual tradition begins at 10 a.m. on Estero Boulevard and makes its way down to Times Square, with tons of colorful floats and exciting performers along the way. Wave your American flags and hop into the all-day festivities in Times Square, with various activities, shops, and restaurants to check out, perfect for you and the whole family. To seal the deal, stay for the impressive, show-stopping firework display, taking off from Fort Myers Beach Fishing Pier later that evening. With dazzling colors and sparkling formations, there’s simply no better way to end this patriotic holiday.
