Boom By the Bay is Back for 2022

Boom by the Bay is BACK and bigger than ever! Mayor Jane Castor’s Boom by the Bay powered by TECO will return on Monday, July 4, 2022, featuring three fireworks displays along Tampa’s waterfront--including the largest one yet from Bayshore Boulevard.  


This annual City of Tampa tradition kicked off in 2019 to celebrate Independence Day. Several parks and local hotspots around Tampa’s Downtown will be activated throughout the day offering family-friendly activities, music, and more. This year’s fireworks display will be larger than ever and concentrated in three locations. 

Attendees can watch the fireworks light up the night sky at dusk from: 

  • Bayshore Boulevard (south of Davis Islands Bridge) - largest fireworks display!
  • Sparkman Wharf
  • Armature Works 

Please note: there will be no fireworks at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, Julian B Lane Riverfront Park, or the Tampa Convention Center this year.  


This year, the City of Tampa is hosting the largest Boom by the Bay firework show yet along Bayshore Boulevard--featuring an entirely remastered show curated by Magic in the Sky – the same pyrotechnic company that works with Busch Gardens.  
In addition to fireworks, residents will be able to enjoy food trucks, live music, a water ski show, family-friendly activities and more along Tampa’s downtown waterfront. To see a full schedule of activities and a map of events, visit BoomByTheBay.com.
