Where to Watch Fireworks in San Diego this Fourth of July!

Many planned fireworks shows around San Diego County have been cancelled due to the pandemic, but there are a few places still planning on lighting up our skies this year!

El Cajon:
The July 4th Independence Day Fireworks show will still go on as planned at 9:00pm from John F. Kennedy Park, however there will be no gatherings allowed at the park.

Poway’s 4th of July Fireworks Show will go off simultaneously from Poway High School and the city’s Sportsplex in the South Poway Business Park at 9:00pm. Cars with parking permits will be allowed to watch fireworks from Lake Poway, but unfortunately those permits are sold out.

You can buy tickets to Vista’s July 4th Fireworks 2020: Brengle Terrace Park Show. Tickets will only be sold in person at the VisTix/Recreation Office at the Civic Center. Tickets will be available to non-vista residents to purchase on June 29th. Fireworks start at 9:00pm. 

San Diego:
While the popular Big Bay Boom Fireworks Show has been cancelled, there will be a TV special airing on Fox 5 or KTLA 5. This special will feature highlights of Big Bay Boom fireworks from past years, along with special interviews and content. The show starts at 8:30pm.

Due to the pandemic, cities or counties may adjust or cancel events at the last minute, so double check the websites provided for up to date information!
Have a happy and safe Fourth of July Weekend!
