We will NOT see those bone chilling freezing cold temperatures on New Year’s Eve around Tampa Bay. In fact, the forecast calls for warmer than normal weather with temperatures all weekend in the upper 70s. Some areas might even hit 80 degrees. There is a chance of some rain, but hopefully it’ll be a typical Florida quick shower.

If you’re looking to stay on the Pinellas County side of the Bay, there are three big fireworks displays to check out New Year’s Eve to ring in 2023.

  • St. Pete Pier

    A party at Spa Beach begins at 8pm with music, food trucks, and champagne bar. You’ll be able to see the midnight fireworks display anywhere along the waterfront, but the pier is your best bet. Before the fireworks, maybe visit the Dali Museum or get dinner at Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille.

  • Clearwater Beach

    Bring a lawn chair or beach towel and have a seat on the sand. Head to the southern end of Clearwater Beach for the best view of these midnight fireworks, which will be set off on the north end of Sand Key (which will be closed to the public). Take the Jolley Trolley to avoid traffic!

  • Treasure Island

    Head to the beach near Gulf Front Park at 10400 Gulf Blvd just south of the Treasure Island Causeway for the best view. Parking is a challenge, but plan ahead to seek out the best city-owned lots.
