Wondering where we should go to watch fireworks on the 4th......or should we just stay on our balcony that faces Sand Key?

Also, are there any parades or anything else going on in the area that day?

Clearwater's fireworks are shot from just south of the Memorial Causeway. You MAY be able to see them from your balcony. Would either have to look to the extreme Left to see them, or, the building would just block your view of them. No way to say for sure, but you should almost for sure be able to see them from either your balcony, or from the front of the hotel.

There is a small town called Belleair, just south of Clw. We used to be able to watch Clearwater's, and Belleair's, further across the bay, at the same time. IF Belleair still does them (small town budget cuts?), and if no buildings on Sand Key block your view, you may be able to see those from your balcony. But they will be farther off in the distance, not right there like Clw's will be.

Just found this...

Location: Coachman Park

Time: 4:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Contact: 727-562-4700

Description: Blast off your Fourth of July celebration with the City of Clearwater at Coachman Park. This FREE event will be tons of fun for the whole family, and will feature a concert with the Mostly Pops Orchestra and The Wilsons. Gates open at 4pm and music will begin at 7:30pm. Children’s activities will run 5-9pm and will include games, face painting, and a mascot parade. End your fun-filled night at 9:30pm with Coachman Park’s exclusive music synchronized fireworks display, the largest in the Tampa Bay area!

This is at the park on the mainland just over the bridge from the beach. Seems like a mostly family friendly event. Things for the kids, and live entertainment. Not sure what kind of entertainment you are into, but the Mostly Pops Orchestra and The Wilsons, are going to be liked by kids, or seniors. Folks in between would probably find them lame, Capt & Tenille-ish, old people music,etc. and would probably have a better time staying on the beach < Just my opinion, but don't want folks going there expecting a rock band or anything else.
