Even though Fourth of July lands on a Thursday this year, there are still lots of ways to enjoy your day off. Whether you choose to sleep in or go to the beach, your holiday should end with a bang!
Here’s the scoops on where you can see fireworks on Oahu:
Ala Moana Beach Park •
July 4, 8:30 p.m.
Thousands upon thousands show up for this particular fireworks show. Rather than get squished between everyone on the beach, why not check out the show from Ala Moana Shopping Center right across the street? The upper parking deck is opened to the public for the 20-minute show.
Aloha Tower Marketplace •
July 3, 10:15 p.m.
If you’re eager to start your Fourth early, then head over to the Aloha Tower Marketplace. A free festivities of food, live art, shopping and fireworks happen from 5 to 9 p.m. There will also be a concert at 10:15 p.m., but you must pay to get in.
Kailua Beach Park •
July 4, 8 p.m.
Thankfully, Kailua was able to save its Fourth of July show this year. Last year, a lack of funding canceled the show. Check out the parade at 10 a.m., then an air show at 6 p.m. and don’t forget about the fireworks! That starts at 8 p.m.
Turtle Bay Resort
July 4, 8 p.m.
Turtle Bay Resort has an entire day lined up for those hanging out this Fourth of July holiday. Before the fireworks show at 8 p.m., the public is invited to take part in a stand-up paddleboard expo, Da Hui Paddle Race, a beer garden and live music.
