After the parade, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., residents and visitors can relax, take in the beautiful beach, and enjoy music and entertainment provided by SURF 97.3 FM’s DJ Vern at Veterans Park. For a bite to eat, be sure to “Be Local Buy Local” by visiting one of the many local restaurants countywide.
The main event will be Fireworks Over the Runways at the Flagler Executive Airport, 201 Airport Road in Palm Coast. The community is invited to attend, and gates open at 5:00 p.m. Local dignitaries and elected officials will read the Declaration of Independence at 7:00 p.m. on the main stage, followed by the fireworks display at 9:00 p.m., which promises to be breathtaking and unforgettable.
There is no charge for entry, parking, or participation. Food and drinks will be available for purchase from a variety of food vendors. No glass bottles are permitted.

The main location for parking, including handicapped parking, will be on Fin Way off Belle Terre Parkway South. Parking on Fin Way is highly encouraged. Overflow parking will be available at Flagler Palm Coast High School.

“This is what a community celebration should look like,” said Palm Coast Mayor David Alfin. “This is a unique opportunity for everyone in our City and our community to unite and commemorate our great nation's history and celebrate our freedoms together. We hope to see you there!”
Board of County Commissioners Chair Greg Hansen added, “The Fourth of July has always been a huge celebration here in Flagler County. It makes sense for all of our cities and the County to work together on one grand effort. Our residents and visitors will be clear about when and where they are supposed to be, which will make the day more relaxed and fun for everyone.”
