There will be plenty of fireworks – and a laser light show – to light up the sky around Lake Okeechobee on Sunday, July 4 as the lakeside communities celebrate the nation’s Independence Day.
Independence Day will bring a fireworks celebration at the Agri-Civic Center, 4601 State Road 710, in Okeechobee, courtesy of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 69, J.D. Mixon and Matthew Paul Buxton. The evening’s events will include games and food. CDC guidelines regarding face masks and general health precautions will be followed.
The amazing fireworks display will be choreographed by Zambelli Fireworks International. Presenting sponsor is Florida Public Utilities Company.
Gates to the Agri-Civic Center will open at 5 p.m. The games will start at 6 p.m. The fireworks will start at approximately 9 p.m., based on weather and light conditions.
Parking will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and holding spaces in order to occupy large areas will not be permitted. If you want to park near a certain group of friends, it is recommended to “convoying” to the facility so you can park together. Travel around the facility once parked will be discouraged.
There is no cost for businesses and individuals that would like to participate with a booth, but all vendors must provide a fun, free game for the kids. The only things that may be given away are bottled water, candy, or healthy pre-packaged snacks.
