Independence Day Fireworks 2011: Miramar, Florida

Update 7/2/12: If you're looking for info on 2012, I posted this short summary

The City of Miramar will hold its Independence Day Celebration on Monday, July 4, 2011 at Miramar Regional Park, located at 16801 Miramar Parkway. How do I know? Yeah, I couldn't find it on the City's Calendar of Events either (though maybe you can now).

So let me introduce you to a newsletter that came with my water bill called Miramar City Beat. I had never heard of it, but it looks like an interesting resource, and as you can see, the online version pretty much summarizes the 4th of July event.

Basically all you need to bring are your friends and family, some blankets and chairs, some smiles, and personally I'd recommend some insect repellent. This is a FREE event which will start at 7 pm and includes rides for children, a live band, and vendors with refreshments. And of course, the finale of the night, the fireworks display, will begin at 9 pm. Last year, the fireworks started promptly at 9 pm, and if you've ever been to a large planned event at Miramar Regional Park, you will know that getting in can take a little waiting in line in your car. What I'm saying is to get there with some time to comfortably spare.
