Thunder on the Ridge

If you don’t have plans for the Fourth of July yet, we highly recommend checking out Thunder on the Ridge in Haines City! Thunder on the Ridge is Polk County’s largest firework display. Along with an awesome fireworks show, they also offer food, beverages, live entertainment, and more. The event takes place on July 4th at Lake Eva Park, and we suggest bringing chairs and blankets for you and the family to sit on while you enjoy the fireworks! We’re positive this will be a memorable experience for you and the family. If you want to know more about the event, just head over to Haines City’s website!

Concert at the House of Blues in Disney Springs

The House of Blues in Disney Springs has a ton of shows to check out this summer! From a Queen tribute band to Bowling for Soup, we guarantee there will be something that you’ll enjoy! Along with bands, you’ll also find events where a DJ is playing your favorite hits. On July 9th, your kids may love going to see DJ Matt Bennett playing their favorite Disney and Nickelodeon hits. Once you decide on a show, we recommend planning on getting to Disney Springs early to grab dinner beforehand, as there are plenty of delicious options to choose from!

Murder for Two

This August, at the Winter Park Playhouse, you’ll find Murder for Two, a musical comedy that’s also a murder mystery! The best part? All 13 characters are played by just two actors. We’re sure you and the family will love this hilarious whodunnit show! It’s open to ages 11 and up, so it’s a great option for a family night out! They have plenty of dates to choose from in August.
