Family Fun & More for 4th of July in Los Angeles

Fireworks on Lake Suwa

Independence Day is just around the corner! If you’re traveling near Los Angeles for the holiday or staying in hotels in Hollywood, then you’re in luck because there are many fun events that day and lots of great LA activities in which to partake. Here are a couple of our top picks for 4th of July events in Los Angeles:

July 4th at Grand Park
Downtown is easily accessible by the Metro, which makes the celebration at GrandPark a very viable option for your Independence Day fun. Live entertainment will start around 3pm, but get there before then for some picnicking, mingling with friends, and splashing in the fountains. After sunset will be a light and pyro show that promises to bring excitement to the downtown sky. Many food trucks will be around, or bring your own picnic! No grilling on the premises or alcoholic beverages are allowed so please plan accordingly.

July 4th Fireworks Spectacular at Hollywood Bowl
This Los Angeles summer staple at the Hollywood Bowl begins its run on July 2nd and continues daily until the 4th. See musical legend Josh Groban and watch as he performs with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Fireworks follow each show for its 3-day run and if you’ve never witnessed this from a venue like the famous Hollywood Bowl, it is a must-see! The Hollywood Bowl is a favorite among outdoor venues in Los Angeles and its Independence Day show is one of the best!

July 4th Fireworks Festival at CBS Studio Center, Studio City
Just north of Hollywood, the StudioCity 4th of July Fireworks Festival will take place at CBSStudioCenter and is perfect for the whole family! Enjoy a Beach Boys tribute band, a model airplane show, a car show, picnic, and more! Kids can enjoy ample children’s entertainment while adults can partake in such activities as a business expo on site! Of course, the night will end with some fun fireworks that will be sure to keep you on your toes.

Happy 4th of July from the Hollywood Hotel and stay safe!
