The City of Temple Terrace 47th Annual Temple Terrace 

Independence Day Celebration - presented by TECO is on July 4!

As the host of the parade and the evening festivities, the City's Leisure Service Department hopes to include as many community businesses and organizations as possible. Opportunities are available for taking part in the parade as well as sponsoring the celebration, which will include live music and other entertainment, and, of course, a fireworks extravaganza! We also are looking to honor some local veterans with a spot on the City float.
