Fort Myers Miracle to celebrate Independence Day with largest fireworks show of the season

The Fort Myers Miracle will host an Independence Day fireworks show that’s twice as long as the postgame shows that have been dazzling fans on Friday nights all season.

This year’s July 4th show will feature nearly four times as many pyrotechnics as the Miracle’s other shows this season.

“We plan to light up the sky on Independence Day,” said Chris Peters, president and general manager of the Fort Myers Miracle. “Hammond Stadium has become THE place to celebrate July 4th with family and friends, and this year’s fireworks show will be bigger and better than ever.”

Zambelli Fireworks, a Pennsylvania-based company that produces more than 1,600 shows annually, will launch fireworks from behind the right field fence shortly after the final out in the ninth inning.

What sets the Miracle’s July 4th celebration apart from other fireworks shows in town, Peters said, is that fans have access to ample parking, a variety of culinary and beverage options, and a comfortable seat to watch future big-leaguers shine before the fireworks show begins. Players will be wearing custom patriotic jerseys that will be auctioned after the game.

This season, the Miracle are hosting 13 postgame fireworks shows, including back-to-back nights on Thursday, July 4 and Friday, July 5. The Independence Day game kicks off an eight game homestand that includes the following promotions:
