July 4th celebrations in Southern California

Some Southern California communities have scaled back or canceled their July 4 celebrations this year — Marina del Rey and Inglewood have canceled — but the skies over L.A. will still bloom with plenty of colorful explosions when dusk hits Monday. Most of the shows in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties are free or inexpensive, but if you’re looking for a more elaborate affair and are willing to spend extra money, head to the Hollywood Bowl to see Hall and Oates, or to the Newport Dunes resort, or to the Rose Bowl, where families can experience an all-day food and music celebration finished off by a pyrotechnic display. Below is a list of locations throughout Southern California that are holding fireworks shows, including addresses and any admission fees. All events are Monday unless otherwise noted.
