The City of Jacksonville invites residents and visitors Downtown to ring in the New Year with fireworks over the St. Johns River. The fireworks will begin at midnight, Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020.
This year fireworks will be launched from a barge on the St. Johns River between the Hyatt and Double Tree hotels and high above the St. Johns River from the Acosta Bridge. These locations are able to be viewed from both the North and South banks in Downtown Jacksonville in addition to viewing from Brooklyn and under the Fuller Warren Bridge where the Riverside Arts Market is held.
There will be no vehicle or pedestrian traffic permitted on the Main Street Bridge from 11:45 p.m. to approximately 12:20 a.m. River traffic will also be halted during that time.
Spectators can view the fireworks from various vantage points, such as along the Southbank, Northbank, Downtown and parts of Riverside
