The Long Beach waterfront will host spectacular fireworks events for Independence Day, including a free show at the Downtown waterfront on July 4, and a ticketed event, Big Bang on the Bay, in Alamitos Bay on July 3. Check it out!
Big Bang on the Bay: July 3

Fireworks Fit for a Queen
One of the signature moments during one of the city’s signature events occurs when an awe-inspiring array of fireworks soar over the Queen Mary (1126 Queens Hwy.) on Independence Day evening. For the first time in a few years, the Queen will host its own family-friendly night of music, entertainment, drinks, delicious bites, and fireworks!
