What are you doing this 4th of July weekend? Cannons Marina suggests planning a “BOAT-A-BRATION” to watch Longboat Key’s “Boom-Boom on the Bay” fireworks show!

Cannons Marina co-sponsors the fireworks event on July 2nd that will be displayed over North Sarasota Bay just after dark. For those in the boating community, this presents an excellent opportunity to have a BOAT-A-BRATION! Anchor your boat around the Intercoastal Waterway’s mile marker 39 and watch the sky light up! Seeing the colors dazzle over the water is a stunning experience you won’t want to miss.

Cannons feels that the fireworks display is a fun and spirit-lifting event for Sarasota/Manatee residents and visitors.  “There’s nothing more spectacular than watching fireworks from your boat,” says David Miller, owner of Cannons Marina. “We love this annual event and we wanted to support something that is thoroughly enjoyed by the boating community.”

If you’re watching by land, you can secure a great viewing spot at Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub or Moore’s Stone Crab Restaurant. Make your reservations now, because the seats go fast!

Longboat Key’s “Boom-Boom on the Bay” fireworks display will take place on July 2nd just after dark, around 9pm. Boom-Boom On The Bay is sponsored by: The Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub, Moore’s Stone Crab Restaurant, the Longboat Observer, Cannons Marina, Longboat Key Club and the Longbeach Village Association.

About the author: I was born a commercial fisherman’s daughter in Cortez, an old fishing village off the west coast of Florida where you can still experience “Old Florida” and get a really good grouper sandwich. I went to school and became an anesthetist, after privileged years of practice, I jumped ship to work in the family business – Cannons Marina. I love my job and the view. I am crazy about my dog Gnarly. Being out on the water is magical. I still get giddy every time I see a dolphin. Often I brag that I had the opportunity to swim alongside a humpback whale – it was freaky and pretty amazing. My life is no doubt boating, but I also love paddle-boarding cooking and travel.

Navigating Fun.
