Celebrate America's Independence Day at the City of Fort Lauderdale's free 4th of July Spectacular! The Independence Day Celebration will feature a patriotic extravaganza featuring live bands, a kids zone, beach games, contests, family activities and a dazzling fireworks display. The 4th of July Spectacular takes place on July 4 from Noon to 9:30 p.m. on Fort Lauderdale Beach at A1A and Las Olas Boulevard.

The Kids Zone will provide non-stop energy and excitement along with plenty of music and comic relief from Noon to 5:00 p.m. Highlights will include DJ, music, bounce houses, water slides, face painting, beach games and contests. Make sure to bring your appetite so you can compete in an old-fashioned hot dog eating contest. And if that doesn’t fill you up, top it off by participating in a July 4th apple pie eating contest!

At 4:30 p.m., the celebration heats up when Making Faces hits the stage with their eclectic blend of rock, reggae, and funk. The Walk of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place at 5:45 p.m. honoring Fort Lauderdale icons Evelyn Fortune Bartlett, Beauregard Cummings, Dr. Elliott Miley Hendricks, and Robert B. “Buddy” Lochrie, Jr. Then get ready for the ultimate Motown Tribute Band when N2Nation rocks the house from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.

As the sun goes down watch the sky light up with the City's spectacular fireworks show at 9:00 p.m. This dazzling pyrotechnic display is simulcast with music on 101.5 LITE FM and is an annual favorite for all!
