4th of July Fireworks in the South Bay!

4th of July is coming up this weekend and what better way to enjoy the holiday than with a firework show? Below is a really great and informative article from southbayevents.com that lists all the local shows you can check out. Lucky me, I get front row seats that the Torrance Beach show 🙂 Where will you be????

Hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday!

Fourth of July Day

One of the biggest days of the year is coming to the South Bay- the 4th of July! Residents of Redondo, Hermosa, Manhattan Beach and citizens from all around the South Bay celebrate the peak of the summer more so than any other spot in Los Angeles, and maybe the whole U.S.A. From crazy house parties, crowded bars and a swollen bike path plus several Fireworks shows, the biggest party of the year should be experienced at least once.

    • Fireworks Shows: 2015 will have the traditional Fireworks shows, which are getting more impressive each year.There is a major show at the Redondo Beach Pier which will be visible from the Pier and Harbor areas and will feature live music and all-day entertainment at Seaside Lagoon. With budget cuts canceling the traditional huge shows at Wilson Park in Torrance, the Redondo show will be one of the largest in southern Caifornia. The 9th Annual Independence Day Party at Seaside Lagoon starts at 2pm with many activities for kids and families including live bands, arts/crafts, workshops, water activities, dancing, food & beverage and more! Fireworks show will begin at 9pm, choreographed to patriotic music. Other shows that are currently open to the public are going to take place at Cabrillo Beach and Torrance Beach (shot from a barge offshore). The shows all begin between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. and more info can be found at Redondo Fireworks.Redondo Beach Fireworks

      Torrance Beach fireworks. The Briles family of Torrance will once again have its privately funded fireworks show off the coast of Torrance beach. Jackie Briles, 95, covers the cost of the show in honor of her late husband. The pyrotechnics will begin between 9 and 9:15 p.m. from a barge.

El Segundo fireworks

      . El Segundo’s annual Fourth of July celebration will take place beginning at 10 a.m. in Recreation Park, 401 E. Sheldon St. There will be food, games, contests and music. Other Gundo like festivities happen throughout the day in this small town, sea-dide hamlet: water-balloon toss, pie-eating contest, and watermelon-eating contest. Live music from 5 to 7pm and the fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. To buy wristbands for grandstand seats and resident priority seating, call 310-524-2700.

Marina Del Rey

          . Marina del Rey’s firework show is back with a new budget thanks to donations from local sponsors. The roughly 20-minute show starts at 9 p.m. over the Main Channel. Presented by Zambelli Fireworks, the pyrotechnic display will be choreographed to music that will be broadcast over KXLU-FM 88.9 and relayed over loudspeakers in Burton Chace Park. The park is at 13650 Mindanao Way (one block west of Admiralty Way) and Fisherman’s Village is at 13755 Fiji Way.
