Red White and Boom is the place to go for Cape Coral fireworks at the biggest 4th of July party in Southwest Florida.
Have you ever watched fireworks from a bridge?
The Cape Coral bridge is closed off to traffic and they shoot the fireworks from the middle of the bridge.
We don't have to worry about setting off brush fires, which are sometimes a cause for concern in our area at this time of year.
The party is on the street at the foot of the bridge and there is so much food, lots of vendor booths, and kiddie activities.
Live entertainment from national acts performs from the big stage at the foot of the bridge.
If you don't want to watch the show squished up like a sardine, you can buy VIP tickets ahead of time and enjoy the party from the prime viewing spot near the stage.
But ........ I think it's fun to be in the crowd, watching all the crazy people, running into friends, and listening to the music coming from the party at Fords Garage.
We park several blocks away off of 47th Terrace and make the walk so we avoid most of the traffic when we leave.
One of these days, I'd like to watch the fireworks from a boat in the Caloosahatchee River, another option if you have a boat and want to avoid the crowds.
The fireworks are spectacular to begin with, and I hear they are even more so from the water!
All in all, this Cape Coral festival is a fun way to celebrate our nation's birthday.

Code Compliance and volunteers have made much progress in addressing problems with foreclosures by identifying, cleaning, processing, and selling abandoned properties. 3) Cape Coral has the lowest water and sewer rates in Lee County. In 2016, the Cape's 30-year contract with LCEC will expire. City government is looking into alternative ways to ensure customers get the best electric services and lowest costs. They may end up establishing a Municipal Electric Utility (MEU), a power system owned and operated by a local jurisdiction, or negotiating a new contract with LCEC. 4) Cape Coral firefighters have made changes to their pension plans to save $65.5 Million over the next 25 years for taxpayers. 5) The Economic Development Office has been flooded with visitors inquiring about commercial properties and business development in Cape Coral.
