BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The City of Boca Raton is alerting all motorists to road detours and closures tonight as the ”Fabulous Fourth” Celebration gets underway. Expect traffic to be jammed in the area of Countess de Hoernle Park/Spanish River Blvd., while A1A will be CLOSED starting at the Deerfield Beach/City of Boca Raton line. Expect the detours, traffic and closures to continue throughout the night.

In Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, unincorporated Palm Beach County and Broward County, expect major DUI saturation patrols throughout the night. Area police departments — always on the lookout for suspected drunk drivers — will be extra watchful throughout the evening. We remind all motorists that under “implied consent,” you are required to submit to a blood or breath alcohol test if you are stopped. You may lose your license if you refuse. BocaNewsNow.com will run all DUI arrests from July 4th as soon as they are processed.

The Fireworks Celebration in Boca Raton gets underway around 6 p.m. with fireworks later in the evening. The celebration in South County Regional Park also gets underway early in the evening, with fireworks well after dark.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is also reminding all that while fireworks are legal in Florida on July 4th, they may not be in your gated community. If your HOA or similar governing body prohibits fireworks, they remain prohibited on July 4th. HOA’s can fine, sanction, or swear out complaints against non-compliant residents which could result in civil or criminal action.
