Skies light up as Tampa Bay celebrates Independence Day

People gathered along the water, at parks, in boats and wherever they could Friday to take in fireworks across the Tampa Bay area.

At the Channelside Bay Plaza, people attended Tampa's largest Fourth of July celebration with live music, food trucks and a fireworks finale to celebrate America's birthday. The celebration was part of the Light Up Channelside: Summer Fireworks Series, held most Saturdays but was changed to Friday to celebrate the holiday. In St. Petersburg, people gathered near the North Yacht Basin to watch the celebration.
