The fireworks show in Marina del Rey will take place on July 4th at 9 p.m. and will last approximately 20 minutes. Tune into KXLU 88.9 FM to hear the official music “timed” to the fireworks display.

To get you in the mood for this coming weekend, here is a little video I made with my point and shoot during the 4th weekend two years ago.

A full list of street closures around Venice and the schedule is “after the jump”!

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

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.)
• Burton Chace Park, 13650 Mindanao Way (1 block west of Admiralty Way)
• Marina Beach (Mother’s Beach), 4101 Admiralty Way (1 block south of Washington Blvd.)

Parking
Come early! Parking lots fill up early on July 4th. There is no on-street parking inside Marina del Rey. Parking is available in 14 self-pay public lots. Most parking lots are full by 6 p.m.

Street Closures
Streets in and around Marina del Rey are heavily impacted on July 4th, and some streets will be closed to incoming traffic in the hours leading up to the fireworks display, depending upon traffic and parking conditions. Many streets in the Marina Peninsula residential area are closed except to local access only by mid-day on July 4th. Street Closure Information.

If you plan to visit a restaurant or hotel by personal car, shuttle or taxi, schedule an early arrival to avoid inconvenience, and call the business in advance of your arrival for traffic advice and instructions.

After the fireworks are over, exiting the Marina may involve substantial delays, and you may not be able to exit the area in the same direction from which you arrived. Be prepared for major detours and street closures.
