Fourth of July Events in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County

Our nickname is Fort Liquordale for a pretty good reason. We like to booze. We like to party. Any excuse, just give us one. And just because it falls in the middle of the week, doesn't mean we can't celebrate

the Fourth of July in true, proud, and drunken American style.

The rest of this steamy tri-county area shares the same party-monger sentiments and has a fair share of events planned for Independence Day. From free outdoor music festivals to pie-eating contests, and a slew of waterfront fireworks displays, there's something for everyone.

So, for those brave souls willing to spend the following work day with a nasty hangover in the name of America, take a look at our list of our picks for Fourth of July happenings in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County.
