View Fireworks from Multiple Locations throughout the City of Jacksonville
Join the City of Jacksonville as we celebrate the nation’s independence with the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration offering an enhanced viewing experience this year with various ways to watch. The spectacular fireworks display will begin at 9:45 p.m. all around Jacksonville with in-person and at-home viewing options.
“Jacksonville’s annual fireworks celebration downtown has become a tradition on Independence Day,” said Mayor Lenny Curry. “As a City, we have taken the necessary precautions in providing additional locations across Jacksonville for our residents to view the fireworks safely. We’re looking forward to producing an experience that is bigger, better and safer.”
This year, the fireworks will be launched from multiple locations throughout the city so that residents can safely watch, socially distanced, from their communities. The fireworks locations include the below:
- Downtown Jacksonville
- Johns Town Center Mall
- Northside: FSCJ North Campus
- Southside: The Avenues Mall
- Westside: Normandy/Lem Merrett Park
- Arlington: Ed Austin Regional Park
The Downtown Jacksonville show may be viewed from areas on both the North and South banks along the St. Johns River. The remaining launch locations can be viewed from each of its surrounding areas.
For at-home viewing, 97.9 KISS FM, WJXT and PRI Productions will be providing Red, White and Boom airing on WJXT Channel 4. iHeart Media will be broadcasting the official fireworks audio on 97.9 KISS-FM and 99.1 WQIK for spectators to listen to synchronized music from their vehicles, mobile devices, or homes.
The City of Jacksonville is committed to the health and safety of the community, and we urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.
