Fourth of July in Los Angeles

Scrambling to make last minute plans for the Fourth? Whether you’re a foodie, an adventurer, a tourist, or have family visiting for the holiday – we’ve got you covered!

The Disney Fan

Disney has fireworks daily, but this fireworks show is sprinkled with a dazzle of Disney magic: a finale of patriotic songs! Plus, you don’t even have to be in the park to see them. Hit up Downtown Disney or Anaheim for a less crowded view!More Info for the Disney Fan

The Tourist

If you’ve got friends or family visiting, the Hollywood Forever cemetery is a great option for the Fourth. This year, they are screening Footloose so bring your own blankets, food, and drink, and get ready for a unique viewing experience. Plus, some celebrities often stop by to introduce the film!More info for The Tourist

The Groupie

July 4th Fireworks Spectacular with the Go-Go’s, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and the United States Air Force Band of the West: Concerts begin each day, 7:30 p.m. Tickets $14 and up (plus fees).More info for The Groupie

The Beach Babe

If you have a friend that’s always trying to get you to the beach, this event has a little something for everyone. Around 2 PM a casual group of skydivers will drop from the sky, along with a marching band, and excellent parade performers. A concert at 6 PM, and a fireworks show at 9 PM, this could be your new tradition!More info for The Beach Babe

The Sports Fan

Ain’t nothing wrong with a little good ol’ American Baseball on Independence day, amiright? The Dodgers vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates game starts at 5:10 PM and a fireworks show will follow the game.More info for The Sports Fan


This event is a solid balance between kids and adult entertainment. Exposition Park has games, food, music, and a few rides for the kids (or their uncle… that still acts like a kid 😉 ). The event starts at 11 AM, with fireworks at 9 PM.More info for The Family

The Foodie

If you love food ( and who doesn’t?) we’re about to blow your mind all over your face! Grand Park is serving you 40 food trucks of realness starting at 3 PM. We repeat: 40 FOOD TRUCKS, YA’LL! The fireworks start at 9 PM, which sounds cool… I guess. But more importantly: 40 food trucks.More info for The Foodie

The Adventurer

Malibu got real fancy this year, and has not one – but TWO approved fireworks shows. We recommend a little day hike, a picnic, and then stay for the fireworks show that starts at 9 PM.More info for The AdventurerWant to weigh in on any of the options above? We want to hear from you!
