Crowds begin to arrive for Fireworks on the Lake at Benderson Park

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Thuesday is Independence Day but the celebrations are already underway. Nathan Benderson Park is holding its third annual fireworks show Wednesday evening, “Fireworks on the Lake."

Leading up to the event, there is all sorts of stuff for the kids, including a fun zone, music and plenty of food.

“The fireworks will be shot from our world class system so you will see it perfectly here from Regatta Island,” Stephen Rodriguez, President and CEO of SANCA said.

The fireworks will begin at 9:15 p.m.. Admission is free, but there is a five dollar parking fee on Regatta Island.
