Fireworks Over The Matanzas is an Independence Day tradition

Holidays are built around traditions and few holidays have more great family traditions than the Fourth of July: great food, outdoor band concerts, a day with friends and family, and of course, fireworks! They all come together in a grand celebration, and there's no better place to celebrate the nation's Independence Day than in the Nation's Oldest City and no better way than Fireworks Over The Matanzas.

First, there's music starting at 6:00pm with one of the region's most popular big bands, The All Star Orchestra, performing from the Plaza de la Constitución's Gazebo.

Then there's Fireworks Over The Matanzas, the highlight of St. Augustine's traditional July 4th activities, beginning at 9:30pm.The 20-minute display high over Matanzas Bay is tightly choreographed to a stirring soundtrack of great popular and patriotic music delivered over an extensive sound system transforming the entire Bayfront between the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument and the Bridge of Lions into a theatre of sight and sound.
