30 Years of Fireworks, Family Fun and Great Food!

The Monday, July 4 fireworks event at The Sandbar marks the 30th year the restaurant has hosted the Annual Sandbar Fireworks Extravaganza. Owner, Ed Chiles, says, “We are so honored and humbled that we have been able to bring joy to so many people and generations of families for so many years.”

This year’s momentous event will take place under the covered, open-air Sandbar Event Pavilion (separate from the restaurant) offering prime seating for the fireworks show which will begin shortly after dusk. VIP Party tickets are available now! Party packages include delicious food – appetizers, entrees, side dishes and desserts, open bar, party favors, valet parking and prime seating, private area to view the fireworks!

The menu will feature delectable appetizers and delicious dinner items featuring fresh-from-the-gulf seafood, Florida heritage foods and farm-to-fork items from the restaurants own farm, Gamble Creek not to mention decedent desserts and beer, wine and specialty cocktails!

Tickets are $140 for adults and $50 for kids. Reservations for the VIP Party are required and seating is limited. Seating in the restaurant is available on a first come, first served basis.

“Collectively, the Chiles Group has proudly been hosting fireworks shows for 51 years, and we are thrilled to welcome our customers and the community to celebrate on this, our 30th year,” said McKee. “We hope those planning to come out purchase their tickets early, as we are sure to sell out!”

Fireworks shows are weather permitting. There are no refunds for inclement weather.  For more information contact (941) 778-8705 or visit

Regarding the Beach House fireworks, with the best interest of our community’s environmental protection in mind, we have decided once again to cancel our July 3rd fireworks display to protect the rare and endangered shorebirds on the beach nearby.
