North Miami, FL – 7/1/2019

The city of North Miami invites the community to join us Thursday, July 4, for an evening of fireworks, music, food and family-friendly fun under the stars, during the annual Independence Day Celebration By the Bay.   

Rain or shine, the Independence Day Celebration By the Bay takes place behind Florida International University’s (FIU) Roz and Cal Kovens Conference Center, located at 3000 NE 151st Street, North Miami. Festivities begin promptly at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to all. Free on-site parking is also available on a first come, first served basis.   

Guests may pack blankets and lawn chairs to witness the spectacular 30-minute firework display reflected over the Biscayne Bay, presented by Pyrotecnico FX at 9 p.m. This year’s host, DJ Hercules, will keep the excitement flowing as an anticipated crowd of 3,500 guests enjoy live music by the band, Entourage. The event features a Kids’ Corner, with complimentary face painting, carnival games, prizes, a jumbo slide and bouncing obstacle course. Also, a tasty array of food will be available for purchase from on-site vendors.    

Personal fireworks, weapons, large bags, coolers and alcoholic beverages are prohibited.    

The July 4th festivities also mark the official launch of the city of North Miami’s Census 2020 awareness campaign. The City’s Census team will be on-site to answer questions and provide related literature.   

Additionally, the Independence Day Celebration By the Bay kicks-off North Miami’s 2019 Parks and Recreation Month activities. Celebrated nationally for more than 30 years, to recognize the role of parks in a community’s health and physical activity, North Miami’s celebration showcases the diverse local programs offered at City parks.
