What do you get when you mix kids’ activities, food trucks, live music, and show stopping fireworks? The City of Homestead’s annual “Race to the 4th” event! The exciting spectacle is returning to its traditional format on Monday, July 4th from 6 PM to 10 PM at the Homestead Miami Speedway located at 1 Ralph Sanchez Speedway Blvd. Homestead, FL 33035. 

Thousands of attendees will enjoy a spectacular evening that features dozens of food vendors, live music, and a kids zone with midway style games and attractions.  While the kids play, guests are encouraged to explore the Speedway and get their hearts racing as they feel the excitement of where hundreds of races have been held throughout the years.
