Top Firework Shows This 4th of July

The 4th of July isn’t complete without a dazzling firework show and luckily for you, Los Angeles (and surrounding areas) has some of the best shows in the country. See here for our favorite 4th of July firework shows.

The Hollywood Bowl

Celebrate your freedom and the marvelous country we live in at The Hollywood Bowl’s annual Fourth of July party. Complete with patriotic tunage from none other than the legendary Chicago, a spectacular firework show and endless beer, you really can’t miss this event. So hop to it! Tickets are known to sell out.

Americafest at the Rose Bowl

The name says it all… Americafest at the Rose Bowl is one of the most patriotic events taking place this 4th of July. You and the family will experience it all: classic American food, a motorcycle stunt show and last but not least a world-renowned fireworks display (beginning at 9 p.m.). Parking for the event will be a whopping $20 but make it worth your while as the Bowl opens as early as 2 p.m. and will be full to the brim with family fun activities (think inflatable rides, game and crafts).

Marina del Rey

If you’re looking for a firework show that is.. let’s say… short and sweet, well then Marina del Rey is your spot. Not only are you experiencing the show over the ocean (which let’s be honest, that’s just something else), the show is only around 20 minutes. You can experience visibility from: Burton Chace Park (with synchronized music from 88.9FM), Fisherman’s Village, Mother’s Beach, waterfront hotels and restaurants and on boats. The show starts at 9 p.m. but we suggest arriving at least 1-2 hours early to find parking and get situated.

Although the most patriotic, the 4th of July is also one of the biggest drinking holidays of the year. Keep both yourself and your wallet by planning to take a premier transportation service like Strack Transportation. It’s never worth the risk of driving, even after just a beer or two, and we can already gage that Uber will be surged through the roof so contact one of our reservationists today by phone at 888-781-5466 or by email at and let us help you plan the most magical 4th of July you’ve ever had.
