If you want to see (legal) fireworks shows in the greater Los Angeles area, then look no further. We’ve got a nice little list of the different events and displays.
Festivities from 4 PM to 10 PM at Artesia Park and Albert O. Little Community Center. In Google or Apple Maps, you can put in 18750 Clarkdale Ave., Artesia, CA 90701. There’s a live concert at 6 PM, and fireworks start at 9 PM when it’s nice and dark.
Go to the Camarillo Premium Outlets and watch the show from the parking lots. Totally free. The fireworks start at 9 PM and will last precisely 18 minutes, which is kind of funny. Parking is first-come, first-serve, so don’t get there last minute.
Fireworks will also be visible from surrounding areas, so the outlet parking lots aren’t a total must. To listen to an accompanying soundtrack, tune in to 95.1 KBBY on your car radio.
From 5 to 9 PM at Recreation Park (401 Sheldon St), there is live music, food booths, and then finally a fireworks show. You’ll need a wristband, and those will be $5 a pop for El Segundo residents and guests and free for kids 2 and under. Doesn’t seem like it’s too open for non residents without an El Segundoite helping you get in.
Fireworks begin at 9 PM on the Huntington Beach Pier (325 Pacific Coast Highway). Reserved pier seating is available but for $25. VIP seating goes for $40. Pier seating likely will sell out fast, so if you want to watch, you may be able to from the beach.
Watch the fireworks show at the Long Beach waterfront. Totally free. The show starts at 9 P.M. To watch, you can go to the downtown waterfront, including the Lions Lighthouse for Sight, Shoreline Village, Rainbow Harbor, and Marina Green.
There will be a 4th of July Block Party in Grand Park from 4 PM to 9:30 PM. There will be a bunch of interactive multi-media art as well as food, music, dances, and more. Fireworks will feature over Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center.

Importantly, no ticket sales at the gate — you’ll have to buy your tickets online here.
Watch fireworks and more at Rose Bowl Stadium for the 96th Annual Americafest.
