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.  This year we will be able to enjoy fireworks from the barge off the coast of Torrance Beach. reached out to local residents and business owners, and the owner of Pedone’s stepped up to fund this year’s show.  Hopefully, everyone will realize how important these fireworks are to the community, and will donate to make sure we can enjoy them next year.  For more information or if you are interested in donating for next years show, go to
