What To Expect: Boom By The Bay

This year, the City of Tampa is hosting the largest Boom by the Bay firework show yet along Bayshore Boulevard–featuring an entirely remastered show curated by Magic in the Sky – the same pyrotechnic company that works with Busch Gardens. 

In addition to fireworks, residents will be able to enjoy food trucks, live music, a water ski show, family-friendly activities and more along Tampa’s downtown waterfront.

In addition, Mayor Jane Castor and Friends of the Riverwalk invite the community to don their red, white, and Bolts blue to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday and our amazing Tampa Bay Lightning during the July 4th Boat Parade.
