Fireworks with a Splash

Catch the fireworks in all their glory from Smathers Beach, Higgs Beach, or any waterfront spot that catches your fancy. But here's a pro tip: to really make the night special, consider booking a fireworks cruise. Whether you're after a simple boat ride or a luxury voyage complete with champagne, gourmet bites, and your favorite tunes, watching the fireworks reflect off the water is an experience you won't forget. Just remember, these cruises are hot tickets, so book early!

Patriotic Party by the Pier

The Rotary Club of Key West is hosting its legendary Patriotic Party right by the Ed Knight Pier. Expect a night filled with music, delicious food, and a fireworks show that'll leave you speechless. The beach comes alive with dancing, kid-friendly activities like slides, bounce houses, and face painting, ensuring there's something for everyone. And with plenty of food and drinks, no one's going home hungry.

More Than Just Fireworks

Key West kicks off the day with a 5K 4th of July Run starting at 7:30 am from the Edward B. Knight Pier. It's a fun way to start the celebration and earn those extra BBQ points! And for something truly unique, don't miss the Key West Mermaid Festival. This enchanting three-day event celebrates everything mermaid, with proceeds supporting the local non-profit Reef Relief, dedicated to preserving our beautiful reefs.
