Palm Beach

Ghostbusters Release Party; 9 p.m. Saturday, July 2, at Pawn Shop Lounge; 219 Clematis St., West Palm Beach, 561-833-6500, pawnshopwpb.com.
Although it isn’t technically a Fourth of July-themed party, what’s more American than Venkman, Spengler, and Co. saving New York City from creepy ghosts? OK, this party is celebrating the all-female remake, out July 15, but it’s sure to be a blast. DJ JayR will be spinning tracks, and there will be an appearance by Central Florida costume group CAT5 Ghostbusters, along with the Ecto 1M. Open bar and no cover from 9 to 11 p.m. Dress in your best Ghostbusters gear and enter the movie ticket giveaway. Don’t be afraid of no ghosts; you’re ‘Merican.

4th on Flagler; Monday, July 4, at West Palm Beach Waterfront, 561-822-1515, wpb.org/4th.
Billed as Palm Beach County’s largest fireworks display. Adults can attend the VIP party and interactive art displays while kids enjoy a play area. There will be craft brews available to sip on, classic Americana cuisine, and three stages of live entertainment. Nothing is quite as breathtaking as watching fireworks blaze in the air over the waterfront on Flagler Drive. Admission is free.
Town of Jupiter Fireworks Extravaganza; 6 p.m. Monday, July 4, at Roger Dean Stadium; 4751 Main St., Jupiter, 561-630-1828, rogerdeanstadium.com.
Fourth of July fireworks are a time-honored tradition at the Roger Dean Stadium in Abacoa. Watch the Palm Beach Cardinals take on the Jupiter Hammerheads at 6 p.m., followed by the fireworks. Guests can also bid on special Independence Day baseball jerseys, and winners will meet their player on the field for a photo and autograph. Bidding starts at $60.

Sixth Annual 4th of July Charity Barbecue; Monday, July 4, at Dada; 52 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach, 561-330-3232, sub-culture.org/dada.
Have a full BBQ dinner for $20 while jazz-funk band Tchaa performs. The dinner supports the Healthy Bellies charity, which helps feed families in the Delray area. The restaurant will provide a great view of the Atlantic Avenue fireworks at 9 p.m.
