Welcome to
NBP Fireworks On The Lake
for 2020!

This year's iteration of Fireworks On The Lake is going to be quite different — a drive-in event with social distancing. While we'll miss the bands, the kids zone, the food and the family fun, this will be a great opportunity for family time with a special fireworks show! We're proud to partner with ABC7 to bring you a celebration that's Suncoast Strong and America proud.

Remember to social distance —
and if you're outside your car, wear a face mask!

THE SHOW: 9 p.m. Friday, July 3. Gates open at 7 p.m. and close at 8:30 p.m. Get tickets here

THE TV SPECIAL: 8 p.m. Saturday, July 4, on WWSB (ABC 7). Available across the Tampa Bay area!
