If you’re looking for a place to celebrate independence day this Saturday, July 4th, you’re in luck! We took an in-depth look at celebrations going on at local municipalities and found the common denominator to be Family Friendly activities, Live Music by one or more bands followed by a grand finale Fireworks show. Some cities will break the celebration into two parts with the morning being dedicated to a parade and the evening festivities scheduled to end with fireworks at 9pm.

One exception to the rule that only cities can afford or are legally able to explode money, or shall we say fireworks, is the Casino industry. Both the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood will offer shows that rival the ones offered by the cities near you. Coconut Creek Casino will be having their fireworks show on July 3rd. In Hollywood, they have made an annual event out of this holiday by bringing in more activities including Zip-Lining, Rock-Wall Climbing, Face Painting/Henna Tattoos, LED Entertainment and at least two bands starting at 7pm with The New Planets and 8pm with a dance band called Flavor. Food Truck enthusiasts will also enjoy a selection of Miami-based food trucks in the parking lot while a good number of restaurants are already located steps away inside the Casino if you would rather enjoy the air-conditioned environment.
