For the 28th year, area Sertoma Clubs are coordinating and hosting a huge patriotic 4th of July Celebration for Pensacola and our visitors.  Including the largest Fireworks display on the Gulf Coast over Pensacola Bay on Tuesday, July 4th, 2017, at 9:00 pm.

There will also be a variety of Arts and Crafts vendors, Food vendors, and live entertainment on the Bayfront stage in the evening.  Most food vendors will stay open until 9 pm.

Of course, the 4th of July would not be complete without a Hot Dog Eating Contest!  Be sure to sign up at 11:15 am as the contest begins promptly at noon!
