I'm not sure what goes on in Ocala. I live in Inverness not too far and we have a nice display ove the lake but if you had the chance to drive to Clearwater for the fireworks, i guarantee you've never seen anything like it.

Check the Star-Banner Go section - they'll give you a complete listing of what's going on for the 4th of July. There's a festival in Dunnellon every year with fireworks and one I think in Golden Ocala. I've never been to either yet, so I can't give you an opinion on how nice they were or not.

Default Ocala 4th of july big event

OCALA has a great event every year by Golden Ocala. Located at corner of NW 80th Ave./Hwy 225A and Hwy. 27. At that corner 80th Ave. changes names as it goes north, to Hwy. 225A. This is by far the biggest fireworks display around, and they have lots of vendors, food, kids' entertainment, and it is highly attended, so go early! Starts at 1:00 on the 4th. I believe today there is a blues festival on the square in downtown Ocala (Hwy. 40 about 4 blocks east of 441). And then TODAY there is a Custom Car & Bike Show at the Livestock Pavillion in Ocala. The Livestock Pavillion is on Jacksonville Rd.

Talking ehh

i know i'm late but just in case someone searches for this for next year i'll give my 2 cents.

i have to disagree with a previous poster. the fireworks at golden hills are mediocre at best and it takes place in an open field that is used for this event only. it is a terrible parking situation and mosquito city when the sun goes down. there are only two ways to get out of there and leaving is a GD nightmare! but i will say it is very family friendly; i haven't been in the last two years but i would guess things have gotten worse not better because of the economy.

we have previously gone to the venetian gardens in leesburg. plenty of parking and it's a beautiful park, they put on a really good show and i've always enjoyed it.

this year we went to cedar key; i would't recomend it.

i'll try clearwater next year as another poster recomended.
