This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

Good afternoon Tampa! For the last several days, we’ve been teasing that something BIG is coming to our city -- and I’m excited to finally reveal the big surprise.

Tampa’s known for all of our celebrations and traditions. And as your new Mayor, I want to kick off my time in office with a BANG. 

Today I’m excited to announce that we’re sparking a brand new tradition in Tampa. One that celebrates our nation’s independence, our freedoms, and all the things that make us proud to be Americans! 

This 4th of July, we will be hosting our newest event: Boom by the Bay! 

This all-American celebration and firework spectacular will feature family-friendly activities, live entertainment, and 4, yes I said 4 fireworks displays spanning 2.5 miles of our waterfront.

The fun will be spread from Armature Works, to Riverfront Park, the Tampa Convention Center, and all the way over to Sparkman Wharf. 

More details about Boom by the Bay will be released over the next few weeks, but I hope all of you are as excited as we are for this new 4th of July tradition. 

Tell your friends, tell your family, and get ready to sport your brightest shades of red, white, and blue -- this is going to be one celebration you won’t want to miss! 

I hope to see you all there
