We are excited to announce that this year's Drone Show Extravaganza will debut not one, but TWO bigger, more spectacular shows! This year's theme will be patriotic, in honor of Veteran's Day, with a South Florida flair. Plan to get there early- check out the 2023 Drone Show Parking Map!
All eyes will be over the ocean, just south of the Pier, as Firefly Drone Shows will light up the skies with a dramatically choreographed presentation of 300 brightly lit drones coordinated by world-class artists and engineers.
5:30 pm: Entertainment begins
7:00 pm: Drone Show #1 with entertainment to follow
9:00 pm: Drone Show #2 with entertainment to follow
*Both shows will be the same and last around 12-15 minutes each.
The event is free and open to the public. The Fisher Family Pier will be closed for this event, but people should gather on the south side of the Pier on the beach (North side will be used for staging) for the best view of the show. According to our drone company, Firefly Drone Shows, the Drone Show can be seen for up to five miles with unobstructed views and agreeable weather conditions. Local restaurants and hotels will be offering specials, so contact your favorite spot for details.
