Southern California’s largest fireworks show will illuminate the skies over San Diego Bay for the 18th annual Port of San Diego Big Bay Boom on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.

Starting at 9 p.m., some of the most technically advanced fireworks, in an array of shapes and colors, will launch simultaneously from four barges placed strategically around San Diego Bay, providing an electrifying display of patriotism in celebration of Independence Day. Fireworks artists will choreograph the approximately 20-minute show to music broadcast live on MAX FM 105.7 radio and The Mighty 1090 AM.

The Port of San Diego Big Bay Boom, which drew approximately 500,000 San Diegans and visitors in 2017, has been ranked as one of the top Fourth of July events in the country.

The spectacular event is best experienced from a number of locations around and on San Diego Bay. Some of the most popular public areas are Shelter Island, Harbor Island, Embarcadero Marina Parks North and South, Cesar Chavez Park and Coronado Ferry Landing. The Port encourages spectators to get to the waterfront very early as parking will be extremely limited and traffic will be heavy.

Options include free event shuttle service to Harbor Island and Shelter Island, along with the Port of San Diego Waterfront Shuttle that connects multiple locations on the San Diego bay front, as well as parking facilities and public transportation.

All boaters who enlist to watch the fireworks from their vessels are encouraged to review the ABCs of California Boating, which includes information on a recently-enacted law that requires children younger than 13 years of age to wear a lifejacket on a vessel of any length.
