On July 4th, San Diego’s North Bay known as THE BIG BAY will light up with a spectacular fireworks display orchestrated to originally produced music selections. Given the natural amphitheater from Point Loma to Shelter Island to Harbor Island to Liberty Station to Little Italy to the North Embarcadero to Seaport Village and the South Embarcadero to the Coronado Ferry Landing, the “show” will capture the attention of hundreds of thousands of people. This is the largest annual event in the western United States with over 500,000 people viewing the show.

The show will consist of about 18 minutes of some of the most technically advanced fireworks produced by one of the best world wide operators of fireworks displays.

The fireworks artists will choreograph the four barge locations of pyrotechnics simultaneously to music broadcast “live” on THE WALRUS 105.7FM radio and THE MIGHTY 1090 AM. At 8:30 p.m., watch live on Fox 5 (San Diego) or KTLA 5 (Los Angeles)

There are plenty of options for where you can see the fireworks:
Shelter Island (Free Shuttle Information)
