Independence Day Celebrations with Fireworks for LA & SoCal Families

It's almost the 4th of July—who's ready for some rockets' red glare? LA and Orange County's many communities compete for sky space on July 4th, launching fireworks willy-nilly at the stroke of 9pm.

Below is a list of locations lighting up the night sky on the Fourth of July (plus several on July 3, and even a couple in late June!). We'll keep adding more right up to the day!
