Marina del Rey Fireworks Celebration




The Santa Monica Pier July 4 Fireworks have been a thing of the past (sadly) for a couple of years now.

But that doesn't mean you have to go without a stellar show in the sky if you come to Santa Monica for the Fourth of July.

The Marina del Rey fireworks are a spectacular nearby alternative. 

The 20-minute fireworks show over the water in Marina del Rey begins at 9 p.m. Enjoy the show while listening to synchronized music at either of two premier locations:

  • Burton Chace Park - 13650 Mindanao Way
  • Fisherman's Village - 13755 Fiji Way

If you're like us and want to be close to the Marina del Rey fireworks action, but without the hassle of driving and paying for parking, plan to bike your way to one of these locations.

You'll not only avoid a traffic jam that lasts for hours post-show; you'll be rewarded with close-up views and the ear-numbing sounds of a truly spectacular 4th of July fireworks show. 





Where to Watch the Marina del Rey Fireworks Show

The Marina del Rey fireworks on the 4th of July.

We'll be heading over early to Burton Chace Park, a 10-acre park with a harbor view, barbecue grills and tables, riding Breeze bikes, which you'll find at various locations throughout Santa Monica.

A little further south from Santa Monica is Fisherman's Village, home to several harbor-front restaurants that offer prime fireworks viewing.

Getting to the Fireworks Show

To help ease parking in the immediate area, consider these other ways to get to the viewing points at Burton Chace Park and Fisherman’s Village.

The Water Bus will be operating from 11 a.m. till midnight. 

The Beach Shuttle offers free transportation from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., so you’ll need to arrange a ride home after the fireworks.

The Free Ride provides free, on-demand transportation around the Marina daily from noon to 9 p.m., and they’ll run a bit longer on July 4. If you see one of the Free Ride cars, just wave down the driver and hop in.

Or, text your pick-up location, destination, and passenger count in advance to 323-435-5000 (no calls, please). The usual 10-15 minute wait for your driver’s arrival may be longer at high-traffic events. Gratuity for your driver is appreciated.

Best Santa Monica Fireworks Viewing Spots

You can create a private viewing party and forgo the crowds and post-display parking snarls at several prime viewing spots in Santa Monica.

From anywhere on Santa Monica State Beach, on the 17th-floor Penthouse bar and restaurant at the Huntley Hotel, and from the newly revamped Onyx rooftop bar at Hotel Shangri-la, you're in prime viewing territory for the fireworks shows in Pacific Palisades to the north, and the Marina del Rey, Culver City, and Westchester fireworks shows to the south.
