Annual Independence Day Celebration Everglades CityCome to Historic Everglades City for a family day of fun and celebration.  This year’s theme is “100 Years of History” so dress accordingly, and be ready to start the day at 10:00 am for the opening ceremony.  Enjoy the parade and contests and then go visit one of the many shops, eateries or parks as you wait for the amazing fireworks we are so famous for!

The fireworks are at 9 pm and you will be shocked at how close and amazing they are in our little town.  This is your opportunity to see them on Saturday, and then enjoy them again wherever you are from!

The will be plenty of places for you to park, and we will have handicapped parking at Everglades Community Church for those who need it.

If you would like to join the parade, doll up your golf cart, buggy or be creative!  We welcome anyone who would like to participate!  We will see you on July 2nd!
