Marathon Beach Party & Fireworks Show
Marathon’s free-admission Sombrero Beach is home to one of the Keys’ largest and longest fireworks displays. Families gather for a full day of beachside activities, beginning with a patriotic parade that starts at 10:30 a.m. and proceeds from Marathon High School on Sombrero Beach Road (mile marker (MM) 50 oceanside) to Sombrero Beach, where a daylong celebration features food, drink, kids’ crafts and entertainment.
After dark, the fireworks display caps the celebration. Hundreds of boaters line up in front of the beach for a preferred view of the festivities. For details, call the Marathon Chamber of Commerce at 305-743-5417 or visitwww.floridakeysmarathon.com.
