4th of July Fireworks
In the family-oriented Marathon, the free-admission Sombrero Beach is the site of one of the Keys’ largest and longest fireworks displays, produced by the City of Marathon and the Rotary Club of Marathon. As well as spectators on land, hundreds of boaters traditionally line up for colorful on-the-water views of the fiery dazzlers.
Families can gather on Sunday, July 4, for a full day of beachside activities beginning with a patriotic parade at 10:30 a.m., following a route from Marathon High School on Sombrero Beach Road, MM 50 oceanside, to Sombrero Beach. The all-day celebration includes food, cold drinks, and family entertainment. Visit floridakeysmarathon.com or call 305-743-5417.
