"Firecracker, firecracker, boom, boom, boom!"

And just like that we celebrate 240 years of independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Oh the irony.

Lucky for us, we celebrate nearby as the 2016 Coral Gables July 4th Fireworks Celebration takes place at the historic Biltmore Hotel once again.

Grounds open at 5pm with a concert by the Greater Miami Symphonic Band scheduled for 7pm followed by the fireworks display at 9pm.  The event takes place on July the 4th.

Admission is free. Concessions and refreshments (not free) will be available in the viewing area.

Parking

Free parking and continuous shuttle service will be available throughout the evening to and from the Biltmore Hotel courtesy of City Beautiful. Shuttle service begins at 5 pm from three locations:

University of Miami – BankUnited Center surface lot 

Coral Gables Youth Center – 405 University Drive 

Garage 4 - 345 Andalusia Avenue

Note: The last shuttle will depart for the fireworks display at 8:15 pm. Govern yourselves accordingly. Do NOT operate on MST (Miami Standard Time).

Bike Valet Parking

If Schwinn® is your preferred means of transportation, the Green Mobility Network offers complimentary Bike Valet Parking service at the William H. Kerdyk Biltmore Tennis Center from 5-11pm.

What Not to Bring

Do not bring your own fireworks (including sparklers). Let the professionals take care of that. That's kind of what you're here for.

Smoking (of all kinds) is not permitted. We're not in Colorado. Or Washington. Or California. Yet.

Do all your grilling at home before coming to the event. You can't spark up the BBQ either.

We love Fido and Kitty, but please leave your pets at home. They don't like fireworks anyway. Not impressed.

Please don't pitch a tent. We're impressed with your Boy Scout skills, but no...

Last, but not least, glass containers and weapons are NOT permitted at the event. Should be common sense, but you already know.

Biltmore 2016 Fireworks Spectacular 

Looking to step your game up? The Biltmore Hotel has you covered. Their Fireworks Spectacular offers open bar, a Stars & Stripes BBQ dinner, and VIP tables for those looking to impress and not stress.

Happy 4th of July!
