Where to See 4th of July Fireworks in Orlando

With no less than 17 different fireworks displays to marvel at on Independence Day, there's no shortage of places to take in the crackling skies on the 4th of July.

  • 1. Red Hot & Boom

    Despite actually taking place on July 3rd, Independence Eve, Red Hot & Boom still reigns supreme as the most popular fireworks display in Orlando. Live bands provide the entertainment in the lead up to the big finale, which kicks off around 9:30 pm and lasts for an epic 25 minutes!
