The 4th of July Concert & Fireworks in St. Augustine starts at 6 p.m. with the All Star Orchestra performing in the Plaza de la Constitucion. At 9:30 p.m. (or just when it is completely dark)., one of the largest fireworks displays on the East Coast bursts above the ancient Castillo de San Marcos and reflects in the waters of Matanzas Bay.
Admission is always free with the best view along the bay front between the Castillo and the Bridge of Lions.
If you’ve ever visited St Augustine during the 4th of July Holiday (this year it falls on Saturday) you know how important this show is! Locals and visitors mark their spots on the Castillo’s green grass early for this spectacular show preceded by an orchestra in the downtown plaza.
If you thought about visiting during the coming weekend, be sure to grab those reservations at the St Augustine Bed and Breakfast that puts you right within walking distance of all the fun!
Don’t feel like walking a couple blocks to the fort and would rather avoid the crowds? No problem, the Castillo is so close to our front door you are able to view the fireworks right from our street even better if you reserved accommodations in a private balcony room.
We look forward to celebrating our independence once again this year and as always St Augustine does it with a bang!
