City of Tampa SPARKS a New Tradition with a 4th of July Celebration and Firework Spectacular

This information is 3 years old and may no longer be accurate.

It’s safe to say, Tampa is BOOMING. And with yesterday’s Boom by the Bay announcement, our 4th of July plans are looking brighter than ever.

This 4th of July, the city of Tampa will debut its newest community event, an Independence Day celebration and firework spectacular titled Boom by the Bay. The event will bring together locals and visitors alike with fun activities, live entertainment, and, of course, a massive firework display spanning 2.5 miles along Tampa’s waterfront.

The firework shows will launch from four different locations—including the Tampa Convention Center’s waterfront. The locations include:

  • Tampa Convention Center/The Sail
  • Sparkman Wharf
  • Julian B Lane Riverfront Park
  • Armature Works/Waterworks Park

Convention-goers visiting during this time will be amongst the first to enjoy this new tradition celebrating our nation’s independence, freedoms, and patriotic spirit. Fun activities, food options, and a prime firework viewing area will be set up in our circle drive and near The Sail.  More details will be released in the following weeks, but we are excited to participate in this sparkling new event.
