Get out your lawn chairs! With so much to do, you’re sure to never be bored while visiting the island. If you want the perfect day of play, here are some of the best Anna Maria Island July 4th Activities.
AMI Privateers 4th of July Parade:
Known as one of Anna Maria’s biggest events, the AMI Privateers 4th of July Parade is a must-see. Start your morning off from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. with this FREE parade, starting at Coquina Beach and ending at the City Pier in Anna Maria. Everyone is welcome, and try to catch some beads! Just as a warning, many of the floats have a knack for bringing out their water guns, so get ready to be wet!
Sandbar Annual Fireworks Spectacular:
If you’re looking for a show of lights, look no further than the Sandbar Restaurant located on the North end of the island! The fireworks show will begin right after dusk under their wedding pavilion. They can be seen on almost any part of the island, so be sure to look for them!
For those who want front row seats, the restaurant is offering an exclusive VIP package! Included are a private area to watch the fireworks, an array of food prepared by their culinary team, open bar, party favors, and valet parking.
