Santa Maria Del Mar Catholic Church
This year the paved parking lots at Santa Maria Del Mar Catholic Church will be utilized for parking after the holiday parade. The parking lots, which are located just west of the Church, will be open at approximately 12:00 p.m. and there is no charge to park in these parking lots.
The Church has partnered with the City in order to add additional parking for this event and we respectfully request that patrons using the parking lots utilize the trash receptacles and port-o-johns that will be available and accessible.
As the parking lots for the Church are located north of SR100, we strongly encourage attendees that live north or SR100 to utilize the Church parking lots. This will allow for easier patron egress back home after the conclusion of the firework presentation.
Off Site Parking
The City has partnered with Palm Coast Transportation Services to provide a free, park and ride shuttle service from Flagler Square (the former Food Lion Plaza) to Veterans Park. The free shuttle will consist of buses shuttling visitors from Flagler Square to Veterans Park and return trips back to Flagler Square; starting at 8:00 a.m. on July 4th and continuing until 11:00 p.m.
The park and ride shuttle is designed to provide additional free parking for the event, which will help with the ingress and egress of holiday traffic. The park and ride shuttle is free and the buses will be making continuous loops to accommodate those wishing to utilize their services.
