Clearwater Celebrates America returns with a bang on July 4, at BayCare Ballpark. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. and will conclude with a dazzling, music-choreographed fireworks show at 9:15 p.m. (subject to change). The annual fireworks display is temporarily relocating from its traditional venue at Coachman Park to BayCare Ballpark, because of current Imagine Clearwater construction.
“No matter from what venue we launch fireworks, the American spirit will live on,” said Mayor Frank Hibbard. “I’m excited that our community can come together again to celebrate Independence Day and honor all of the men and women who have contributed to our American democracy.”
Attendees can celebrate America’s birthday in style with the largest fireworks display in stadium history, a star-studded concert by The Black Honkeys Band and fun activities and giveaways for children of all ages. All-American culinary concessions, such as hamburgers, hot dogs and popcorn, will be available for purchase, as well as adult beverages.
Clearwater Celebrates America – At the Ballpark is a ticketed event. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at BayCare Ballpark, by calling (727) 712-7300 or online at bit.ly/ClearwaterCelebratesAmerica starting June 8 at 10 a.m.
There are two ticket options: berm access or reserved seating. A berm ticket allows for access to activities on the concourse and standing room on both the berm and the field near the concert stage. A reserved seating ticket allows for access to activities on the concourse, a guaranteed seat throughout the night and no access to the berm or field. Parking is included.
Those planning to attend should purchase their tickets in advance because of anticipated demand and a limited number of tickets. The fireworks display will be the best show in town and is designed for attendees inside the stadium. There are no alternative viewing locations.
Drivers are reminded to expect traffic delays near the stadium at southbound U.S. 19 and Drew Street.
