budget Miami hotel. This year's July 4th festivities will include a kids' zone, delicious food and soft drinks as well as the largest and most spectacular free fireworks show in South Florida.
The Fourth of July – also known as Independence Day – has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence. Two days later, delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence.
Bayfront Park, which runs along Bayside Marketplace off Biscayne Boulevard, will be open all day on July 4th. The kids' zone runs from 3pm to 7pm ahead of the dazzling fireworks at 9pm. If you bring any bottles, cans, coolers or personal fireworks to this popular event, then you will have to watch it from another location because they are not allowed. The friendly staff at our hotel in Miami will be happy to provide more information about this and other July 4th celebrations in the area.
