Marina Del Rey Fireworks Start at 9pm This Year!

The Marina Del Rey Fourth of July Fireworks Show will begin on July 4th at 9PM. KXLU 88.9FM will broadcast the official “music” for the show and provide details.


4th of July in Venice circa 2008!

Weather reports are expecting a bit of cloud cover and fog, so you may have to walk or bicycle down the Peninsula to see the fireworks up close rather than just taking to the beach wherever you are.

My favorite 4th of July fireworks spot is the end of Windward near the Venice Pier, but wherever you end up, have fun! And be safe!

• Southbound Strongs Drive at Washington Boulevard
