We’re Ready To Light Up The Sky Again at Broadway at the Beach

The ooohhhs, the aaahhhs… the bright sparkles… the music and the memories… you've asked, we can now answer… ladies and gentlemen, fireworks are returning this summer to Broadway at the Beach!

High flying fireworks create a perfect ending to a day spent at Broadway. After dinner, while sipping on a pineapple drink, enjoying a cone of your favorite ice cream or while snacking on freshly popped kettle corn, take in the sights and sounds as we light up the sky above Lake Broadway. You can see the fireworks from anywhere within the interior of Broadway, but if you time it right, there are a few prime viewing areas perfect for capturing the moment with photos or video.

Here's a few of our picks: Check them out while riding the Broadway 360 in Pavilion Park next to WonderWorks. You can also have an elevated view while dining outside on the second level of Hard Rock Café or get a window seat while eating dinner at Paula Deen's Family Kitchen! But remember, timing is key!

Hitting the skies at 10pm every Tuesday beginning June 8th and then on Fridays beginning June 18th, fireworks take family vacations, date nights or those much needed girl or guy nights out to a higher level of entertainment. Plus, you don't want to miss our special patriotic show on the 4th of July! But it's not just June, July and August when colors dance across the sky, check out the complete schedule here. Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving weekend and New Year's, we got you covered! (Weather permitted, of course!)

So after a year hiatus, we are looking forward to lighting up the skies above Broadway at the Beach once again! For our guests, whether it's the little one looking up in wonderment after climbing on top of dad's shoulders, stealing a sweet romantic kiss with your beloved, or you're taking a selfie with your crew on The Avenue, you can make magical memories with the return of fireworks this year at Broadway at the Beach!
