Miami, it’s that time of the year again. Deck yourself out in a flashy red, white, and blue outfit, and make your way to a free Independence Day party and fireworks display.

Take your pick of prime vantage points, from waterfront fireworks at Black Point Marina in Cutler Bay to Hialeah’s laser light show at Ted Hendricks Stadium to the Wharf’s Star-Spangled Awesome on the Miami River. Grab a few lawn chairs, a bucket of cold beer, and lots of patriotic spirit to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Star-Spangled Awesome at the WharfHead to the Miami River for a July 4 party beginning at noon. Enjoy a DJ; fare from Garcia’s Seafood, King of Racks, Spris Pizza, Cracked by Chef Adrianne, and Mojo Donuts; and free beer with the purchase of a whiskey shot. Stick around for fireworks after sundown. 114 SW North River Dr., Miami;
