NICEVILLE, Fla — Ready for some fireworks? The county’s best and most popular patriotic fireworks show will be held July 4th in Niceville. The fireworks will begin shortly after dark; typically, about 8:45 p.m.
Dan Henkel, Niceville Mayor Pro Tem, confirmed on Thursday the fireworks show would go on as usual unless something unforeseen, such as inclement weather or a spike in coronavirus cases that would put peoples’ health at risk.
“We’re looking forward to a big show and a great family event,” said Henkel.
The fireworks will begin shortly after dark; typically, about 8:45 p.m.
Fireworks will fly high and exploded over Boggy Bayou after being launched from Niceville’s custom-made barge anchored in the bayou between Lincoln Park in Valparaiso and Lions Park in Niceville.
It has long been considered by many to be the top Independence Day fireworks display in all of Northwest Florida, drawing thousands of locals and visitors alike.
It is best to arrive early to avoid traffic.
Pre-show music blasted from huge speakers on the barge can be heard from the shores of the bayou and throughout much of the community. It begins around 6 p.m.
Niceville’s spectacular fireworks display is one of the longest-running in the area. More than a ton of fireworks will be rocketed into the sky, and the show always includes an explosive, crowd-pleasing finale.
