Social Southwest Florida: July Edition

Fireworks, Barbecues and trying to stay cool in this summer heat! Hi it’s Marcus Larrea with Palm Paradise Real Estate and the month of July is looking to be full of fireworks, with events all month long in Southwest Florida!

This upcoming 4th of July weekend we’ll be kicking off the month with a bang, as 4th of July celebrations are returning across Southwest Florida! The festivities start in Naples with the Naples 4th of July Parade which takes place on Saturday, July 3rd at 10am. Be sure to wear red, white and blue as you cheer on all of the participants as they make their way down 3rd Street and down 5th Avenue South.

Sunday, the 4th of July, starts bright and early at 7am by honoring our local veterans with Cape Coral’s “Freedom 5k”. The race will take place along Cape Coral parkway, crossing the Cape Coral bridge to Fort Myers and back.

After the race, one of Cape Coral’s largest annual events, “Red White and Boom” makes its return along Cape Coral Parkway, near the foot of the Cape Coral Bridge from 5-10pm. This event is completely free to guests, and features an assortment of food trucks, vendors, and live music starting at 5:30pm. A massive fireworks display starts at 9:30pm that you won’t want to miss!

One of the perks of living in Southwest Florida is the variety of events to choose from on a holiday weekend. If you can’t make it to Cape Coral for their Red, White and Boom celebration, don’t worry! Every city from Fort Myers to Marco Island will be holding their own unique events with fireworks, food and fun for the whole family. Make sure to check with your local city’s website to learn more about what 4th of July events will be happening in your area!
