Cannons is so happy to be co-sponsoring the “Boom Boom on the Bay” fireworks show again this year…and this one is going to be extra-spectacular! Who doesn’t love watching fireworks over the water? Come by land or by sea on Monday, July 2nd to watch the 4th annual “Boom Boom on the Bay” Fireworks Spectacular! Not only do we have some fantastic pyrotechnics planned, but the weather seems to be cooperating. After Debby Downer moves out of the way, we’re in the clear! (What is up with this tropical storm, anyway? She sure is taking her sweet time! Time to go, Deb! Skedaddle!)
Details for the Boom Boom on the Bay: The fireworks show will light the sky over Sarasota Bay just after dark on this Monday night, July 2nd, around 9 pm. If you want to watch by boat (which we highly recommend!), anchor on the Intercoastal around Mile Marker 39. If you want to watch by land (which we also highly recommend!), reserve your spot at Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant & Pub or Moore’s Stone Crab Restaurant. Seats go fast, so call now to make sure you can grab a table.
Other co-sponsors of the event include Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant, Longboat Key Club, the Observer Newspaper Group, Cannons Marina, the Longboat Key Village Association, Rusty Chinnis Contractor, Inc and inshorefishingtrips.com with Capt. Craig Madsen.
We hope you will come out and join us for this festive event…it’s sure to be a BLAST!

You can take the girl out of Florida, but you can't take Florida out of the girl. I grew up in Bradenton and moved to NYC when I got an internship at the David Letterman show (don't worry, I wasn't one of the interns who had an affair with the boss!) I eventually scored a job at CosmoGIRL magazine and then at MTV. But no matter how cool the job was, I hated dressing in layers, sweaters make me look bulky and I missed wearing flip-flops every day. I also missed my family. So, after 9 years of drinking waaay too many Cosmos and eating waaay too many BBQ nachos at Virgil's in Times Square, I moved back to the sunshine state. My life is now ruled by my two-year-old daughter, Olive. She loves going to the beach and playing in the sand. Just like Mommy.
