Independence Day

Posted on July 03, 2012

Happy 4th of July!

There sure are a lot of fun things to do in Naples Florida to celebrate Independence Day! The area fireworks displays are not the only way to show your national pride either…Why not come on down to the city’s traditional parade which kicks off at 10 AM. The parade route begins on Broad Avenue South and treks down Third Street and Fifth Avenue South! There are 100s of participants including floats, music and various give-aways! It is such a wonderful feeling to see all the red, white and blue line the downtown streets while everyone comes together, regardless of their political persuasion to celebrate America! The shoppes on Fifth Avenue will be holding sidewalk sales from noon to 2 PM. If you are anywhere near the Coldwell Banker office, please stop by and say hello!     

The fireworks begin at 9 PM and they are set off the Naples Pier. Many boaters decide to watch the display from the water, which I must say is quite spectacular. If you don’t have your own boat, or a friend with a boat, one suggestion might be to view the fireworks from the M/V Double Sunshine, docked at Tin City. $60 buys you a beverage, a treat and hors d’oeuvre’s…Plus, of course, the firework show…Call 239.263.4949. ~If you head down to the beach to watch the show, get there early, and don’t be in a hurry to leave, as it can get pretty congested. Bring a blanket, a cooler, and maybe even some sparklers! ~Another interesting suggestion for history buffs takes place at 10 AM on July 4th at The Estero Community Park, where the Historical Society hosts its annual reading of The Declaration of Independence.

Whatever you decide to do, whether it be to watch a parade, enjoy the fireworks or simply a back yard BBQ with friends and family, please be safe.  

Happy Birthday America from all of us at The Harris Peppe Team!
