Fort Lauderdale: A 4th of July Message From Mayor Dean Trantalis

The 4th July is a uniquely American holiday when we gather with family and friends to celebrate our nation’s Independence. This year, with the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School still fresh in our minds and with acts of violence continuing to take place locally and abroad, we are especially grateful for the blessings of freedom, peace, and equality.

As we mark America’s 242th birthday, we invite you to join us for our 4th of July Spectacular from noon – 9:30 p.m. on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The free event takes place at A1A and Las Olas and features family activities, beach games, live music and fireworks.

At 5:45 p.m., we will have the Walk of Fame Induction Ceremony that was rained out Memorial Day weekend. We will honor Fort Lauderdale icons Evelyn Fortune Bartlett, Beauregard Cummings, Dr. Elliott Miley Hendricks, and Robert B. “Buddy” Lochrie, Jr.

After that ceremony, get ready for the ultimate Motown Tribute Band when N2Nation rocks the house from 6:30 p.m. The concert is followed by a dazzling fireworks show at 9 p.m.

This weekend, as you hear patriotic music being played and see thousands of American flags being waved, please pause to remember the heroic men and women of our United States armed forces who helped make our freedom possible. Today, these courageous soldiers continue to defend our democracy, safeguard our security, protect our liberty, and preserve our outstanding quality of life. If you have an opportunity, please make a special effort to thank them for their sacrifice and service.

On behalf of the city of Fort Lauderdale, I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe 4th of July!

Dean J. Trantalis
