This year, the 4th of July holiday weekend will start a day early with the much anticipated Grand Opening Celebration of the Pompano Beach Pier Parking Garage on Thursday, June 30th, from 7-10pm.

Guests will get a first look of this iconic structure added to the beach skyline with a star-studded evening under the stars including musical performances by Just the Two of Us Beatles Tribute Band and Turnstiles – A Billy Joel Tribute Band while they mix, mingle and snap selfies with A-list “celebrities” throughout the night. The event will also feature a food truck rally by Gourmet Truck Expo, vendors, artists, and a ceremonious ribbon cutting at 8 pm followed by a light fireworks display.

The Pier Parking Garage is located at NE 2nd St between A1A & Pompano Beach Blvd. In addition to adding an additional 663 spaces to the beachfront area, the garage will also include the City’s first Tourism & Welcome Center on the ground floor, and the development of two new streets – Pier St and Seabreeze Way – which have paved the way for additional retail and restaurants which will make up the Pompano Fishing Village, scheduled to break ground later this year.

The event is free to the public, however a limited number of presell parking spaces are available now at www.pompanobeachfl.gov for $5 per car. Additional on street parking will be available day of as well as parking in the surface lots located at East Atlantic Blvd & A1A for the regular rate of $1.25/hour.
