July 4th Fireworks on Anna Maria Island

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Keller Williams on the Water


July 4th Fireworks on Anna Maria Island - On Anna Maria Island, we'll have a bonus and have fireworks on 2 days. 

Thursday July 3rd,  2014  shortly after 8 p.m. Fireworks will be on the beach at the BeachHouse Restaurant in Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island.   Parking will be limited so it’s best to park your car and take the free Anna Maria Island trolley.  

BeachHouse Restaurant - 200 Gulf Drive North in Bradenton Beach, FL 34217

July 4th Parade - Before the fireworks, there's a parade.  Plan to celebrate all day.  The parade starts at Coquina Beach at 10 a.m. and travels north on Anna Maria Island to Bayfront Park.  It will probably end around noon. 

Friday July 4th , 2014  shortly after 8 p.m.  Fireworks will be on the beach at the Sandbar Restaurant at the north end of Anna Maria Island in the city of Anna Maria.   Once again, park your car and use the free island trolley.  

Sandbar Restaurant - 100 Spring Avenue in Anna Maria, FL 34216.

You can also watch the fireworks on Anna Maria Island from a boat out in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Some tips to remember :

  • Setting off your own fireworks is illegal on Anna Maria Island.

  • Alcohol is not permitted on the beach. 

  • There are 2000 parking spots at Coquina Beach.  They will probably fill up first thing in the morning.  Once again, the trolley is recommended. 

  • Plan for the crowds.   Take the extra time in your car to enjoy your family friends.

  • The last trolley leaves from Coquina Beach (south end of the island in Bradenton Beach) at 10 p.m.  Get to the stop before then. 

  • If you’re at a trolley stop after dark, flash your cell phone or flashlight so the trolley drivers can see you waiting at the stop.   

Plan to spend the day visiting the local shops and restaurants and swimming in the gorgeous blue green water.   Fireworks are weather permitting.


Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
