DELRAY BEACH’S JULY 4th CELEBRATION 2017

Pardon our Dust: Delray Beach is making its beach better than ever so pardon our dust this July 4th.   The July 4th Celebration will take place beachside as usual, with some minor changes.

A1A closure: From 2pm on Tuesday, July 4th, A1A will close from Thomas on the north all the way past Casuarina to Bucida on the south to allow for easier pedestrian exit after the fireworks.

Beach Access: Limited access and egress to the beach. The north side beach entrances remain the same. The south side will have designated fenced entrances. Use only the entrances that are indicated.

No Showers: Not all of the showers along A1A will be in operation on July 4th. Showers at Anchor Park are available.

The Good News is….

We will still have the activities that families have come to know and love about Delray’s July 4th Celebration.  Sandcastle contest, live entertainment, al fresco dining and of course fireworks from the north side of the beach at 9pm.

Extend your stay in Delray Beach this July 4th Weekend! Book with our Host Hotel, Marriott Delray Beach.

ACTIVITIES FROM : 5:00pm – 9:00pm
