Panama City Beach’s Annual 4th of July Celebration

4th of July in Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach’s annual 4th of July Celebration is loud, fantastic, crowded, delicious and more! It’s one of the best beach parties of the year and better yet–everyone is invited!  If you’re excited about coming to this event, then start planning! This is hosted at the Panama City Marina and this year is most certainly scheduled to be amazing–according to city officials. Admission is totally free, but it is advised that visitors come early to get a prime spot for the most amazing views. Most certainly past celebrations have drawn massive crowds, some boasting more than 10,000 people. For those worried about parking arrangements and the like–the city is assuring residents and visitors that this year there will be plentiful parking and everything will be well organized to ensure a gorgeous show everyone will be able to enjoy.

Panama City Beach gives residents and vacationers alike a front row seat to a beautiful display of fireworks, but even before the light show starts guests are surrounded by boundless entertainment. From live music to exciting, interactive entertainment booths, to authentic vendors and more–there’s quite a bit of action taking place. All in all, this is simply the spot to celebrate it all. This is also peak season in Panama Beach, which explains the massive crowds.  Also, there are many family activities taking place this time of the year–and it’s a drawing card. The Marina itself is simply spectacular and guests can fully enjoy themselves here. There will also be a fireworks display at Pier Park with live music and entertainment. Visitors can actually go to both events if they want too.

Don’t forget to plan and make reservations ahead of your visit!.

Plan Ahead for the Celebration and Make Reservations

Seahaven Beach hotel and resort books fast for this celebration!  We certainly offer tons of family fun for our guests and are in the sweet spot for this event. It’s easy to claim your beach chair in the sand here, and enjoy the surf and sand during the day while venturing out and catching all the sights and sounds of the holiday weekend in the evenings.  Every 4th of July the gulf sky is ablaze with an out-of-this world lights display, and it is truly unforgettable!  The Gulf Marina Park is only a 5 minute walk from Seahaven, which means guests staying with us will have a view of the fireworks show without ever leaving the resort! Guests can also choose between our other two properties as well: The Reef or Origin at Seahaven. Visitors will be delighted to find there are accommodations to fit any budget or special expectations. If this is a first visit–it is understandable visitors would like to have the very best to ensure a comfortable stay.

Further, Seahaven resort is within walking distance of some of the best dining too.  Sharky’s is right next door and offers a fantastic oceanfront experience. There is live entertainment all summer long and the food is to die for!  Guests staying at Seahaven with children will find their kids eat free here.  Now, that is an exclusive plus!  Also, for the 4th of July celebration, it’s very easy for guests to get from point A to point B strolling the beach. This even brings very unique vendors, entertainers and much more. And let’s not forget the many other activities that vacationers can engage in right on the beach! There are numerous evening cruises that provide a great view of the city in the evening hours for couples and families alike!  And, the fireworks up and down the beach look really dazzling when you’re out on the water.

Start Planning Your Trip Ahead of Schedule

Planning for your accommodations is one thing, but you also need to plan an itinerary too. There’s a lot to see and do here, and absolutely no way to do it all in one visit, especially not on the 4th of July weekend.  Visitors can enjoy fantastic novelty shopping up and down the strip, or they can engage in some enjoyable putt-putt and historic sight seeing too!  No one will go hungry, that’s for sure.  There are some amazing eatery’s along the boardwalk for the holiday as well. From funnel cakes to dipping dots, vacationers can pick and choose to their hearts delight.

On this beautiful beach, no matter where tourists choose to venture off too, there’s magic in the air each and everyday!  This Independence day is going to be one of the biggest and best ever yet.  Yes, as said, there will be crowds but with all of the ongoing entertainment and dozens of fun things to do–it’s all worth it.  We will say it is fairly humid and hot this time of the year so make sure you dress for the season. Hundreds to thousands of visitors come to Panama City Beach each and every year, specifically for special events like this one.  One thing that vacationers never have to question is fun–because that never stops here.
