California - Celebrate The Fourth
San Diego Lights Up For Its Big Bay Boom
June 1, 2017 | View PDF
One of the best fireworks-on-the-water shows in the West is, of course, in San Diego Bay. On July 4 at 9 p.m. the skies light up to celebrate our nation's birth.
With four locations, there are plenty of options where you can see the fireworks: Shelter Island, Harbor Island, North Embarcadero, South Embarcadero, Coronado Ferry Landing, and, of course, from private boats. Plan to get there early. Bring your lawn chairs and friends down to San Diego Bay to watch the show.
Boaters, remember "safety first" and please observe the 300-yard safety zones around the four fireworks barges. Please keep a lookout for boats around you. The Coast Guard, Harbor Police and special patrol vessels will assist in providing safety on the water along with the Harbor Police, City of San Diego and Imperial Beach Police will assist in traffic coordination and public safety on land.
The Port of San Diego's Big Bay Boom July 4th Fireworks Show benefits the Armed Services YMCA's family service programs for our military families including our Wounded Warriors at Naval Medical Center San Diego.
San Diego has thousands of military personnel deployed and the families left behind often face specific challenges that the Armed Services YMCA helps them resolve.
