The 2014 July 4th Lake front Celebration begins at the St. Cloud lakefront Thursday night July 3rd. Thursday night will be the return of our annual Margaritavlle Party that should attract thousands of Jimmy Buffet fans and those looking for an exciting summer party. Of course, Friday July 4th is going to be a celebration of the most awesome nation in the world, and in our celebration there will be an huge assortment of excellent talent! The most commonly asked questions concerning the festival are: "When are the fireworks starting and when is the band playing" That's because we're known for the most amazing fireworks display in Central Florida and we have the best in music to go along with that!
We hope that the Fireworks and the bands aren't the only reasons you want to come to the St. Cloud Lake Front Celebration, because we have lots of FREE entertainment to enjoy. The entertainers are already booked for this year's event and will once again WOW the crowd. So if you catch a main stage act, or a clown, or a magician, or maybe a Tae Kwon Do demonstration, or take a ride on an airboat, be sure to thank our Partners and Sponsors who we'll be sure to be announcing all three days...they make this possible every year financially. If it wasn't for their support you wouldn't see any of these great entertainers!
Now on to the the Food Vendors. We are bringing in the largest assortment of food vendors in all of Central Florida. For some reason food just tastes better at an outside July 4th event.
On Thursday we'll bring out the Parrotheads in all of us. It's a Key West Jimmy Buffet Style Margaritaville Party on the Lakefront! The band, Volcano Joe and the Hot Lava Band will be back and will energize the party right off the bat. At 6:45 we'll be kicking off our beach Volleyball Games. This is going be a party you'll never forget! At 10pm we'll end the party so we can all get home and prepare for July 4th Celebration. The entertainment starts at 3pm and so will the crowds. There will be music, food, friends, family games and the honoring of our nation's independence...right around the corner. At 8:15pm The Osceola Community Choir kicks off the Patriotic Celebration and Veterans Tribute set to video. This is always well recieved and highlights the day! Then at 9:15pm the Fireworks explode over the lake and light up the sky for what seems to be an hour of glory and explosions!
