BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Space Coast of Florida is known for rockets blasting through the air creating amazing views in the sky and never disappointing the great people that live and visit here.
In fact, following Monday night’s scrub of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch, you can add a launch to your list of things to do on America’s 241st birthday.
Holiday celebrations are always plentiful in Brevard County.
There are almost as many choices on where to celebrate Independence Day on the Space Coast as there are rockets firing into space during the year.
From Mims to Malabar and beyond and like our beautiful launches, the local towns and cities of Brevard County will also not disappoint its citizens who want to attend a parade, picnic or fireworks show.
Below is a list and links on where to celebrate the Fourth of July as well as some tips on how to stay safe.
The City of Rockledge will host its 31st Annual Independence Day Picnic on Tuesday, July 4, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at McLarty Park, 790 Barton Boulevard.
The City of Melbourne’s 4th of July Celebration is one of the area’s most exciting and enticing regional events for thousands of residents, families and friends.
The 2017 celebration features the Firecracker 5K and the Honor America 4th of July Parade.
Each year the City of Cocoa and City of Rockledge team up with the Brevard Symphony Orchestra for a night of fantastic free family fun on July 4th in Cocoa’s Riverfront Park to celebrate our Nation’s Independence Day.
This year’s event begins on Tuesday, July 4 at 7 p.m. with a kick-off from Cocoa’s Mayor, Henry Parrish, III.

ELSEWHERE ON THE FOURTH:
The Elks Lodge located at 12955 Columbia Blvd. in Titusville is hosting a celebration from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
They are throwing an “inside” Fourth of July picnic that includes just about anything you would throw on a grill.
The cost is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children. For more information please call 321-268-2113.
Plan accordingly for road closures and please…. Don’t Drink and Drive, it’s just that simple.
Assign a designated driver and if by some chance being impaired is an issue, Budweiser and the Automobile Club of America (AAA) has TOW-TO-GO available.
Since its inception in 1998, Tow-To-Go has safely removed more than 24,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and Midwest.
It is designed to be a safety net for motorists who did not plan ahead when drinking away from home on celebratory holidays.

The statistics are staggering when it comes to accidents on, before or after the Fourth of the July when it comes to fireworks.
Below is a recent story on Space Coast Daily on how to handle fireworks properly and whom you should be buying them from.
Enjoy the holiday but return to work on Wednesday with 10 fingers and toes.
- Light fireworks in a cleared area free of vegetation or dry debris.
- Clear debris from around campfires, grills and all fire sources.
- Remove debris from any location where fireworks could land.
- Always have a water source available.
- Aim fireworks away from people, homes and wooded areas.
- Never use homemade fireworks.
- Discard used fireworks in a bucket of water.
- Store unused fireworks, matches and lighters out of the sight and reach of children.
- Never leave a fire unattended and make sure it is completely out before leaving it.
- Report any fires immediately to 9-1-1.
Everyone here at Space Coast Daily would like to wish you and your family a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday.
