Cape Coral Red, White & Boom 2017 set to light up 4th of July night

On Tuesday, tens of thousands will pack Cape Coral Parkway near the foot of the Cape Coral Bridge to celebrate the birthday of our nation and be part of the annual Cape Coral Red, White & Boom.

Dating back prior to Cape Coral being a city, the annual fireworks spectacular has become an annual favorite not only for those who live in Cape Coral but, for visitors and surrounding residents alike.

While the star of the show is always the largest Fourth of July fireworks display in the area, over the years, the event has become much more.
