Apalachicola Independence Day Celebration
July 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Celebrate your Independence early at the award-winning “Independence Eve” event in Apalachicola from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. at Riverfront Park. Enjoy great food, live music, a parade, ice cream social, veterans’ tribute, children’s activities, and more. This year’s featured entertainment is Johnny & the Love Seats. Lead Singer Johnny Hayes recently wowed audiences on NBC’s “The Voice.” When the sun goes down, get ready for the best fireworks show on the Forgotten Coast set to a patriotic soundtrack. The pyrotechnics are launched from a barge in the river, creating a spectacular effect as the fireworks light up the night sky and are reflected in the water. The event is free. Bring your lawn chairs or picnic blanket. For an upscale experience, become a sponsor at the $500 level or above and enjoy a reserved table in our VIP section on the docks where you can savor complementary refreshments from a private bar.
