Central Florida’s premier summer celebration to be enjoyed by the entire family and hope that you will consider being a vendor for this exciting event! Visitors from around the Central Florida area will be in Sanford to Celebrate Independence Day to enjoy our spectacular fireworks display over beautiful Lake Monroe.
