This afternoon, newly minted mayor Jane Castor announced her new signature event, a 2.5 mile-long firework celebration in downtown Tampa on July 4.

The new “Boom By The Bay” event will feature four firework displays along Tampa's waterfront, as well as live music, family-friendly activities and more.

According to Castor, the new firework displays will launch from Waterworks Park/Armature Works, Julian B Lane Riverfront Park, the Tampa Convention Center/The Sail, and Sparkman Wharf.

“Today I’m excited to announce that we’re sparking a brand-new tradition in Tampa, one that celebrates our nation’s independence, our freedoms, and all the things that make us proud to be Americans,” said Castor in a recent video.

More details are coming, but you can follow along on the event’s Facebook page.
