The Jacksonville Beach fireworks will start at 9pm.
The downtown fireworks will start at 9:45pm and will be launched this year from the Acosta Bridge instead of the traditional floating barge. The Acosta Bridge will be shut down starting at 9pm and will reopen at 11pm. The city says this will give a better view of the fireworks show throughout downtown and Riverside. The fireworks are expected to last a little longer this year as well. Best viewing locations are suggested to be Friendship Fountain, The Jacksonville Landing, The Riverside Arts Market and Unity Plaza. Even though the celebration is on a weekday, crowds are still expected to be large.
St. Augustine's Fourth of July celebration at the Castillo de San Marcos includes a live music concert and a spectacular fireworks display over the historic bayfront. The fireworks begin at 9:30 p.m.
