From 5 - 6:30 p.m. at Miromar Outlets (10801 Corkscrew Rd., Estero) the Geek Squad will be performing live music, fireworks begin at dusk. All festivities are FREE.

Beginning at dusk fireworks will begin on Fort Myers Beach at the Pier and Times Square. Call 454-7500 for details.

Beginning at dusk fireworks can be seen from the bayside of Sanibel Island and all along the Sanibel Island Causeway. Best view in my humble opinion, as the fireworks from both Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel Island can be seen at the same time from this gorgeous vantage point.

Happy Independence Day, America!
