Central Florida's Free 4th of July Events

4TH OF JULY in central florieda.png

Have you ever seen a “Salute to the Union”?

A salute of one gun for each state in the United States will be fired at noon on Independence Day at capable United States military bases. This Saturday the “Salute to the Union” will take place across the country in honor of the Fourth of July and our Declaration of Independence.

If you’re looking for your own way to celebrate the day, Central Florida is bursting with Red, White, and Blue events this week.

Here are some of the top Fourth of July events in the area! 

Fireworks at the Fountain


Downtown Orlando | July 4th from 4 to 10 p.m. 

The iconic Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando will be hosting live music, activities, food and beverages, and spectacular fireworks. We’d suggest packing a picnic basket, grabbing a comfortable blanket, and heading down to the lake early to get a good spot on the grass.

Red, Hot & Boom

Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs  | July 3rd from 4-11 p.m. 
If you listen to XL106.7, then you’re bound to have heard about Red, Hot & Boom. This celebration is beyond your typical fireworks display. It’s an all day music experience! From 4 to 11 p.m., popular artists such as Madison Beer, Dean Lewis, Mabel, MAX, and more will be performing. There will be food vendors along the lake, but we suggest packing a soft-sided cooler with plenty of water to keep you cool. If you plan on making a day of it, consider setting up a 10’x10’ tent. You can keep your personal piece of shade paradise up until sunset. Fireworks will start at 9:30 p.m. 

Clermont's 4th of July Red, White & Boom


Waterfront Park, 100 3rd Street | July 4th from 6 to 10 p.m.
With live music, family activities, and a dazzling fireworks show, Clermont’s celebration at Waterfront Park is great for all ages. This lakeside park will keep you busy all day long with a splash pad, water sports, and a 30 mile fitness trail that’s great for cycling. Relax on the beach as you wait for the fireworks.

Mount Dora’s Freedom on the Waterfront & Traditional Parade 


Elizabeth Evans Park | July 3rd at 5 to 9 p.m.

If you’re looking for classic Americana, Mount Dora's holiday events are the place to be! At 5 p.m. on July 3rd, head over to Elizabeth Evans Park on the water for live music and a fireworks display.
Donnelly Street | July 4th at 10 a.m.
On the fourth, don't miss the traditional downtown parade through Downtown Mount Dora. Find a spot at Donnelly Park, right next to our ERA Grizzard office, for a great view of the parade. After, be sure to check out the famous downtown shopping, antiquing, and restaurants!
