Guide to Independence Day Celebrations Events & Things To Do on July 4th in Panama City Beach
Panama City Beach knows a thing or two about throwing parties, shin-digs and beach-bashes. When it comes time to celebrate the freedom, justice and liberty of our grand nation however, all of Bay County comes together in honor of that very foundation the United States of America was built on.
Join the community this Fourth of July as we stand united in honor, gratitude and respect of those who fought or are currently fighting to protect our land, our lives and our children's future. Remember to thank a Veteran, shake a soldiers hand or help a neighbor whose spouse is deployed - for a little kindness goes a long way.
Honor Our Heroes
