The July 4, 2016 Independence Day fireworks show in Niceville will be held on Monday, July 4. The immensely popular fireworks show over Boggy Bayou will begin at dusk.
Fireworks will be launched over Boggy Bayou from the city’s custom-made barge anchored between Lincoln Park in Valparaiso and Lions Park in Niceville. Pre-show music, emanating from large speakers on the barge, begins around 8 p.m. The music is heard from both Lion’s Park in Niceville and Lincoln Park in Valparaiso.
Niceville’s colorful fireworks display is one of the largest and longest-running in the area. More than a ton of fireworks typically are fired, and the show always includes a spectacular crowd-pleasing finale.
The most popular places for public viewing of the annual fireworks show are Lincoln Park, Lions Park, and the Turkey Creek area in Niceville. Parking is limited.
The annual fireworks show is funded by donations, fund-raising events, t-shirt sales, aluminum can recycling, pork butt sales, and the Fireworks Trust Fund. The annual cost is near $25,000 or more.
