Fireworks at the Fountain: Lake Eola Park
Lake Eola Park is right in downtown Orlando, amid the bustle and excitement of the magical city.

The fireworks will light up the skyline of downtown Orlando. It’s a free event that will be held from 6 p.m. until 10 pm. Live entertainment, as well as food, drink and knick knack vendors, will be present.
City of Winter Park Olde Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration
Each year, the City of Winter Park presents their Olde Fashioned 4th of July Celebration from morning until mid-afternoon.

Winter Park, a quieter, more subtle, yet equally pleasant city outside of Orlando, is about 30 minutes away from The Fountains.
