Pier Park Festivities Schedule for July 4th

by June 30, 2011 • 2 comments

Well, it’s almost here, the pinnacle event of every Panama City Beach summer – July 4th weekend.  This is a weekend when almost all of Panama City Beach is full to the brim with people from all over the southeast.  I’ve been here since 2001 but I can’t hardly remember what July 4th was like before Pier Park.  But now that we have it, they’ve held a huge event every year with closed off streets, bands playing, festivities and a huge fireworks show.

All events are taking place on Monday, July 4th at the times listed. Here’s the schedule:

Main Stage

2:00 – 7:00 pm

Enjoy live performances by Almost There, Anthony Orio & the Goodfellers provided by Tootsies Orchid Lounge, 98th Army Band “Crossfire”, and Southeast Navy Band “TGIF”.

9:30 pm

After the fireworks, stick around for a special live performance by Matt Mason.

Bookit.com Beach

2:00 – 5:00 pm

The whole family is invited to the Children’s Crafts & Games at BookIt.com Beach.

Is this the schedule specifically for Monday 7/4…or are there activities going on throughout the weekend?
