Mayor Jane Castor's Boom By the Bay returns next month to celebrate Independence Day with three firework displays, live music and shows, food trucks and more spread across Tampa's waterfront on Monday, July 4.

The firework displays will be located at Armature Works, Sparkman Wharf and Bayshore Boulevard (south of Davis Islands Bridge). The Davis Islands display will be largest display of the three.

Before the firework show begins at dusk, there will be a variety of family-friendly activities occurring throughout the city, including a water-ski show outside of Sparkman, a hot dog eating competition at Armature Works (Tampa's original weiner eating contest happens the day before in Ybor City), plus food trucks at Curtis Hixon Park and a boat parade throughout Riverwalk.
