Happy Fourth of July! Here's the Police Rundown on What to Expect:


The annual City of Naples fireworks display on July 4, 2017 is expected to draw a large number of spectators, which will result in congestion in the area of the pier, beach parking areas, neighboring residential areas, and businesses districts.

The City of Naples Fireworks Display will be held on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. The fireworks will be presented from a barge approximately 900 feet north of the Naples Pier.

The Naples Pier will close at 6:30 p.m. to permit first responders to establish their posts for the fireworks display. The Naples Pier will reopen at approximately 11:00 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, notification of amended fireworks display commencement will be disseminated to local networks. On-site police personnel will also assist with citizen notification.

Local residents are encouraged to walk, ride bicycles, or carpool to reduce traffic congestion during the timeframe of the event.

The Naples Police Department will utilize resources in an effort to minimize traffic delays, control parking, and create an overall safe and enjoyable environment. Electronic message boards displaying event information are stationed within the City of Naples on Goodlette Road and Golden Gate Parkway.

Suggested Routes:

Because heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic is expected before and immediately following the fireworks display, attendees traveling from U.S. 41 North or Golden Gate Parkway may find it easier to watch the fireworks from the beaches north of 5th Avenue South and depart the City on the following routes:
 
• 3rd Ave. South to U.S. 41 North.
 
• 4th Ave. North to U.S. 41 North.
 
• 7th Ave. North to U.S. 41 North.
 
• Gulf Shore Blvd. north to Mooring Line Drive to U.S. 41 North.
 
• Gulf Shore Blvd. north to Mooring Line Drive to Crayton Road.
 
Officers will direct traffic at most of the major intersections, with an emphasis on moving traffic north onto U.S. 41, east to U.S. 41 and north onto Goodlette Road. Please do not attempt to use alleys to bypass traffic as this will only increase congestion.

PROHIBITED CONDUCT

• Fireworks of any kind, including sparklers and sky lanterns are prohibited on City beaches and anywhere west of Gulf Shore Blvd. Violators will have their fireworks confiscated and face a fine of $115.

• Don’t Litter! When you are preparing to leave the beach and gathering your belongings, please do not leave your trash behind. There are several trash disposal containers located at every beach access point.

• Do not take glass onto the beach. Naples beaches do not permit glass containers. The fine for this offense is $115.

• No dogs, bicycles, motorized vehicles or scooters are permitted on the city beaches.

• Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on the Naples Pier, or on the beaches immediately surrounding the Pier.

The following are a few items to ensure your evening is fun and safe:

• Use discretion when allowing your “beach neighbors” to watch your belongings if you decide to take a walk or go for a swim.

• Leave your fireworks and sky lanterns at home.
