Fourth of July in Naples

Today's weather in Naples, Florida is Partly sunny with Thunderstorms
High 90

4th of July Parade and fireworks.

Parade 10 AM
Fireworks 9 PM

This year will be the first time that we go and see the parade on 5th Ave. From what I hear it is a pretty good time, I really do not think that I have ever attended a parade where I didn't have a good time. I'll let you know next week how everything turned out. Maybe we can dine at one of restaurants on the bay while we are there.

Later Friday afternoon we will venture down to the Naples Pier to catch the forth of July fireworks show. We are told there is over 1000 shells of fireworks that will eliminate the skies that night costing the city more than $30,000. The City is telling us that they are prepared for nearly 20-30K patrons to be at the event. We have been to the fireworks show and I must say that it is close to one of the biggest "City" shows that I have ever seen. The fireworks reflecting off of the Gulf of Mexico and lighting up the Naples Pier. What a beautiful time.
