Area residents looking forward to the annual July 4 fireworks display at Miami-Dade County’s Black Point Park and Marina won’t be disappointed as the celebration is set again for this year, thanks to an ongoing team effort.
The Village of Palmetto Bay, the Town of Cutler Bay and Miami-Dade District 8 Commissioner Lynda Bell’s office have joined forces to cover the costs of the spectacular celebration, with help from major sponsors Publix Super Market Charities, Black Point Ocean Grill and a Sheree Courtney of the Miami-Dade Park and Recreation Department says it will be a great event.
“We’ve got fireworks at 9 p.m.,” Courtney said. “People are free to come and park throughout the day and picnic, they can bring their grill and food and drinks. A lot of people arrive around 10 or 11 a.m. to pick a spot, and then their neighbors come and join up with them and more neighbors join them. It’s a great chance for families and friends to get together.”
A Coast Guard flyover is scheduled for 7 p.m. before daylight fades. In years past, thousands of people have attended the free show. Parking is free as well.
Any proceeds remaining from corporate sponsor donations beyond the fireworks costs will benefit the Perrine Baseball and Softball Association.
Black Point Marina is located at 24775 SW 87 Ave. in Cutler Bay. For more information call 305-258-4092.
