Here is what you need to know about the July 4, 2023, celebrations at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.

Universal Studios’ 4th of July Celebration

While the theme park closes every night with a flurry of fireworks, their Independence Day celebration is a sight to behold. Expect live music, themed food, and a parade of stilt walkers. In 2022, the Fourth of July event also included a dance party with classic characters like Scooby-Doo, the Minions, and Squidward and Patrick from SpongeBob SquarePants.

The night will end with stunning Fourth of July fireworks.
