While it may seem early to be planning for the Fourth of July, Independence Day in the US is only a month away. Orlando, Florida is one of the most exciting places to be when the day arrives, as celebrations are plentiful and the spirit is jovial. From theme park extravaganzas to gazing at fireworks displays with your family, the mood is festive.
Some of the most well-known Orlando attractions for the Fourth include Red Hot & Boom in Altamonte Springs, the raucous celebrations at Disney World, and the fireworks in downtown Orlando.
Red Hot & Boom! is the most popular fireworks festival in the area, and it rocks central Florida annually on July 3rd—because Floridians need two days to celebrate. The event takes place in Crane’s Roost Park and features live music from entertainers of the local and global scale. Food and beverage vendors are aplenty, and sponsor XL 106.7 FM fills in whenever the live musicians need a break. Of course, a magnificent fireworks display tops off the night.
Meanwhile, Disney World Orlando is a site to behold on this mid-summer holiday. If you can withstand the massive crowds, all four major theme parks—Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom—are celebrating in full swing. Patriotic parades, live music, fireworks shows, and numerous other special events are included in general admission.
For the more laid back families, a simple yet memorable night of watching fireworks in the park is probably more your scene. Just about every neighborhood in the Greater Orlando area can provide this sort of entertainment on the Fourth. However, the best fireworks displays in central Orlando are in the areas of Lake Eola Park (where the fireworks famously blast over the Lake Eola Fountain) and Downtown Sanford over Lake Monroe.
