The Burg knows how to party patriotically. Head to its scenic downtown bayfront for the city's annual fireworks display. Fireworks start as early as 8:30 p.m. or as late as 10 p.m. depending on weather conditions. The fireworks will be visible all along the St. waterfront with prime viewing from Vinoy, Albert Whitted, North Straub, Spa Beach and South Straub Parks, which are all on Bayshore Drive. No alcohol or personal fireworks permitted.
