The fireworks over Lemon Bay are a long-standing tradition in Englewood and something the residents and their families look forward to every year. This annual event “Light Up Lemon Bay” Fireworks Display on Manasota Key is sponsored annually by The Sunrise Rotary every year. Launch time is tonight at 9:05. You can view the Fireworks on the mainland coast of Lemon Bay.
You can also TUNE IN TO WENG AND FOLLOW ALONG WITH A PATRIOTIC MUSICAL TRIBUTE!
The show will be visible from Blind Pass Beach (also known as Middle Beach), as well as Manasota Beach, Englewood Beach, Indian Mound Park, Lemon Bay Park, the west end of West Dearborn Street, Tom Adams Bridge, and by boat in the Gulf of Mexico and Lemon Bay.
The Lemon Bay Sunrise Rotary has been organizing the show since 2010. They took on the job after Englewood did not see a fireworks show in 2009.
Traditionally, the Englewood Jaycees had staged fireworks shows. But when the Jaycees no longer saw community support nor had the wherewithal to stage a show, the sky remained dark over Englewood that year.
Rotary members are still supporting the fireworks, but rely heavily on donations from the public. A Big Thank You goes out to Garden State Fireworks and their crew for working hard to “Light Up Lemon Bay!
