Each year the Plant City’s July 4th Celebration, which is sponsored by the Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce and coordinated by the City of Plant City Recreation & Parks Department, offers a one-of-a-kind experience for the community.
The Plant City stadium was packed despite earlier rain and families didn’t let a little mud get them down. Soccer, bounce houses, corn hole, bungee jumps, a rock climbing wall, games, activities, live music and an abundance of food kept festive party-goers occupied well into the evening.
When the sun began to set they slowly poured into the stadium stands, waiting patiently for the grand finale to begin. After some quick announcements, the first beam of the 20-minute firework spectacular shot into the sky and soon all of Plant City was able to simply look up to see the impressive show.
Cars were lined up for nearly two miles around the stadium as families camped out to watch the show and when it was done cars piled onto the designated exit routes and headed home, where many continued the festivities long into the night with fireworks of their own.
