This Saturday marks the 239th year of our country’s adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Every year on Fourth of July, Pinellas County offers a plethora of activities and events to enjoy. While a backyard barbeque with family and friends is always fun, take a look at some activities to add to your celebration of freedom.
- Fourth of July in Downtown St. Petersburg. Set to go off at 9 p.m. this evening, the annual “Fireworks Across the Bay” can be seen from most of the city’s waterfront parks. Bring your family and friends to downtown St. Pete and enjoy the display.
- A Fourth at Great Explorations. Looking for something the kids will enjoy? Join the Great Explorations Children’s Museum, located on 1925 4th St. N. St. Petersburg, FL, for patriotic games, crafts and activities. The event starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday and will be $9 and $10 dollars.
- Fourth of July Dollar Splash Day. Enjoy a day at the local pool for only $1 per person from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit stpete.org for pool locations.

- Tampa Bay Rowdies vs. Atlanta Silverbacks and Post Game Concert. If you’re looking for a little sports action, catch the Tampa Bay Rowdies play against the Atlanta Silverbacks at Al Lang Stadium at 6 p.m. There will be a pregame tailgate and the first 750 fans will receive a Rowdies rally towel. And after the game, fans will get to enjoy a free concert performed by “The Super Stars featuring Ronnie Dee.”
The fun doesn’t stop there though. There are plenty more activities going on all across Pinellas County. Check out tampabay.com, tbo.com and stpete.org for more activities and fun.
