Lake Eola remains ground zero for Fourth of July celebrations


  • Vernon Raineil Cenzon
No matter how many fireworks shows we’ve seen, there’s something about them that always leaves us in awe. Every Independence Day for the last 40 years, Lake Eola has transformed into a celebration of red, white and blue. By 9:10 p.m., the festivities will reach their peak – in the sky. Spend the day by the lake with family and friends, and close out the night with an explosion of lights. Of course, food and drink vendors will be around, too, so you can munch on hot dogs and hamburgers and crack open some cold ones.

4-10 p.m. Tuesday, July 4 | Lake Eola Park, 512 E. Washington St. | | free
