Fireworks over Matanzas Bay, downtown St. Augustine

Fourth of July Fireworks are Spectacular on Florida's Historic Coast

The July 4th fireworks display over Matanzas Bay in St. Augustine draws thousands of patriotic revelers.

Before Florida’s Historic Coast lights up the sky, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy yourself on July 4th in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches.
Let’s start with the sparkle!
The 4th of July Concert & Fireworks in St. Augustine starts at 6 p.m. with the All Star Orchestra performing in the Plaza de la Constitucion. At 9:30 p.m., one of the largest fireworks displays on the East Coast bursts above the ancient Castillo de San Marcos and reflects in the waters of Matanzas Bay. Admission is free and the best viewing spots are along the bayfront between the Castillo and the Bridge of Lions. For more information, visit 

The best way to get to the fireworks downtown is to take the Park & Ride Shuttle. A free Park & Ride Shuttle will be available on July 4th from 6 p.m. until midnight from the following four parking locations along Anastasia Blvd.:

The shuttle will drop passengers at the east end of the Bridge of Lions and pick-up from that location for the return trip following the fireworks. Old Town Trolley Tours and Ripley’s Red Train Tours are providing a dozen buses for the shuttle.
