Palos Verdes Firework Shows 2016 Viewing Locations


Palos Verdes homes owners have a great opportunity on the Peninsula to enjoy this wonderful holiday.  Beginning in the morning at Malaga Cove School or Point Vicente Park in Rancho Palos Verdes, there are day long celebrations.  After dusk, from Palos Verdes we are lucky to be able to watch fireworks up and down the coast in the skies above local South Bay cities.  Off the coast of Torrance Beach at 9:30 p.m., there will be a special fireworks show put on by the sons of the late Jackie Briles’ (founder of the privately funded barge show) in her honor.  This is a free event and will attract many people who will come to enjoy daytime beach activities and stay for the evening fireworks show.

In Torrance, after years without a fireworks show, the city will be hosting a fireworks show at the Torrance Civic Center.  There will be seating available at the Torrance Toyota Sports Complex located at 555 Maple Ave, Torrance, which will open at 7:00 p.m.  Go to to find out more about these free tickets.  The actual firework show will be starting at 9:00 p.m..

A little further up the coast in Redondo Beach, Seaside Lagoon will once again be celebrating the holiday beginning at 2:00 p.m.  You can enjoy water games and fun, arts and crafts and musical entertainment.   There is a cover charge of $20 adults/$12 children over 2, and it does sell out early so purchasing tickets as soon as possible is a must.  For more information on the Lagoon and/or to purchase tickets go to

On the other side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula in San Pedro, Cabrillo Beach will once again present their fireworks show at 9:00 p.m.  This is a great place to bring the family to the beach to enjoy the show.  And if weather permits, from Cabrillo Beach you can also view the firework show off of the Queen Mary in Long Beach.

Choose your location and get ready for the Fourth of July fireworks.  Just grab a blanket and enjoy!
