According to the Parks & Recreation Director, Fanny Carmona, as many as 5,000 spectators attended the event last year, so this year we could see as many--- if not more. “We encourage everyone to arrive at 6 pm or earlier to get a good parking spot—as well as a good viewing spot. Spectators who arrive first will be able to successfully stake out prime area to set-up their blankets and chairs and enjoy the entire evening with us.”
The prime viewing areas for fireworks show includes the Palmetto Bay Village Hall parking lot located at 9705 East Hibiscus Street, Franjo road between SW 180th Street and US1, and the southeast open field area (directly east of softball field #6) of Palmetto Bay Park, located at 17535 SW 95th Avenue—a safe distance from where the fireworks launch, in the center of the park’s softball complex at 8:45 pm.
Remember to bring your lawn chairs, sunscreen, bug spray and any patriotic attire you may have. Also, very important to note that personal fireworks and personal BBQ grills are not permitted near or at event premises.
