It’s almost time for Boom by the Bay, an annual event in the city of Tampa on the 4th of July. Armature Works is already gearing up for the festivities (now only one month away). The Tampa Heights hub for food and fun will be one of four locations participating in Boom by the Bay this year. Tampa Heights visitors will have a lot to enjoy this year.

Boom by the Bay Powered by Tampa Electric is back on Monday, July 4, 2022. There will be 3 firework viewing areas, including the BIGGEST firework show yet along Bayshore Boulevard.

Attendees can also enjoy food trucks, live music, a water ski show, family-friendly activities and more along Tampa’s downtown waterfront. You can find even more details about the Independence Day festivities online.

Armature Works has just announced that on July 4th they will have a stage set up along the Riverwalk for an evening of live music. In addition to a stage for music, Armature Works will create a Kids Zone, an outdoor art auction, a perfect view for firewalls, and a front row seat to the boat parade.
