Fourth of July celebrations are coming back to Tampa and the biggest one in the area has just been confirmed: Boom by the Bay!
We all know 2020 was not the best year and holidays took a big hit. Well, this year is going to be the complete opposite. The City of Tampa has announced that they will be celebrating Independence Day and are bringing back “Boom by the Bay”. In 2019, the first “Boom by the Bay” welcomed 200,000 people to Downtown Tampa. It is Florida’s largest Independence Day fireworks display and will be yearly from now on. They might have skipped last year due to COVID-19 but the city is not missing out this year. “Boom by the Bay” is FREE for all and will be kicking off at 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 4th with a Boat Parade on the Tampa Riverwalk. Then, starting at 7 p.m. all over the city there will be plenty of activities for all ages, food vendors, entertainment, and OF COURSE fireworks!
Get ready for a star-spangled 4th of July unlike any other! 🤩🇺🇸 #BoomByTheBay is BACK and bigger than ever with more locations, fireworks, and fun for the whole family. Sunday, July 4th, join us as we celebrate #IndependenceDay as a community.— City of Tampa (@CityofTampa) June 8, 2021
