Independence Day Celebrations

The Long Beach Peninsula


Celebrating the Fourth of July on the Long Beach Peninsula goes back as far as anyone can remember. Tens, if not hundreds of thousands of eager tourists flock to the Long Beach Peninsula every year to light off over 200 metric tons of fireworks. So please come and enjoy yourself, but please keep safety at the top of the priority list. You can't have fun without safety with fireworks, so grab a lawn chair and grab a seat practically anywhere on the Peninsula and enjoy the world's longest beach firework display.
