Marina Del Rey Fireworks and Street Closures July 4th, 2009

The traditional fireworks extravaganza over Marina del Rey takes place on Saturday, July 4th, 2009 at 9 p.m., and lasts approximately 20 minutes. Music coordinated with the fireworks display can be heard on KXLU FM radio, 88.9. The music will also be relayed over loudspeakers in Burton Chace Park.

Presented by the famed Zambelli Pyrotechnics, which originated more than 100 years ago in Italy, the display will follow the Italian tradition of huge finales. The event is sponsored by Los Angeles County Department of Beaches & Harbors.

The street closures around Venice (which everyone should be aware of) are after the jump!

Where to Watch the Fireworks
Fireworks are launched from a floating barge located in the waters of the main channel between Fisherman’s Village and the Breakwater (the ocean entrance to the harbor). Depending upon weather and cloud cover on the night of the show, the fireworks can usually be seen throughout the marina, and from the waterfront side of most hotels, restaurants, beaches, apartments and anchorages. You may be able to glimpse the fireworks from afar from Playa del Rey and Venice Beach Pier. Popular locations include:

• Fisherman’s Village, 13755 Fiji Way (2 blocks west of Lincoln Blvd.)
