Destin, Fla. – In honor of Independence Day, the City of Destin and Compass Resorts will host the 36th Annual Independence Day Fireworks Show. The fireworks show can be seen over the East Pass and will begin at 9 p.m., Monday, July 4th. Tune in to Z96 (96.5 FM) for the simulcast music. In the event of inclement weather, the fireworks show will take place on Tuesday, July 5th at 8:30 pm.
The City of Destin encourages everyone to think “safety first” if you plan to set off your own fireworks. Firework laws shall be enforced and if you plan to purchase legal fireworks do so from a state-certified fireworks distributor only. Place used fireworks in a bucket of water before you dispose of them, keep small children and animals away from the fireworks and never relight those that do not work.
