Celebrate July 4th with friends of the Tampa Riverwalk!

Date: Thursday, July 4, 2024
Time: 4 pm - 9:30 pm
Location: Sparkman Wharf

Celebrate July 4th with Friends of the Riverwalk as we host a July 4th Boat Parade, Water Ski Show, Blessing of the Fleet, and fireworks as part of the Star Spangled Banner festivities at Sparkman Wharf. The parade route will be similar to our holiday light boat parade but will include a Water Ski Show to kick off the celebration and a blessing station.

Boats will be decorated in red, white and blue and compete for the most patriotic boat! We will also provide prize bags for all registered boaters.

Registration is required to participate in the boat parade. Spectators are free. VIP tickets are available for purchase to view the water ski show, parade and fireworks with seating, drinks and food! Umbrellas are allowed but outside chairs and coolers are prohibited.
