4th of July in Orange County

If you’re hoping to get out of the greater Los Angeles area this 4th of July Orange County might be your best bet. A little bit more family friendly, you’ll find events of all kinds! See here for just a few of our favorites.

Independence Day Fireworks Extravaganza

Don’t miss one of South Orange County’s best aerial firework shows. Gather your friends, family, tune your radio to KSBR 88.5FM and look towards the sky over Doheny State Beach for this patriotic extravaganza. The fireworks are synchronized to a captivating musical score (which is where KSBR 88.5 FM comes in) so make sure the boombox has some fresh batteries! If you’re looking to watch from the beach arrive early as this is the busiest day of the year!

4th of July Fireworks Cruise

Dana Wharf is hosting a 4th of July fireworks cruise! Choose from either the dinner cruise, from 7:30-9:30 ($84 for adults, $39 for kids) which includes a buffet style dinner and an excellent view of the show, the display cruise from 8:00-9:00 which includes the firework show only ($45 for adults, $29 for kids) or the curlew sailboat fireworks cruise, from 6:30-9:30, which happens to be a bit more romantic and includes champagne, soft drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a spectacular view of the fireworks show. Tickets available at www.danawharf.com.

Old Glory Boat Parade

Newport Beach Harbor becomes a festive delight when it comes time to celebrate the best country in the world, America. Owners adorn their boats in red, white and blue decorations, balloons, streamers and waving flags that outline the skies as Sousa marches and Anthems fill the air. If you’re looking for perhaps a more family-friendly event that is a bit earlier in the day this might be your go-to as this runs from 1-3:30.

Whether you’re staying in the general Los Angeles area or perhaps traveling to Orange County, we hope that you stay safe this 4th of July.
