Big Bay Boom! Annual San Diego Fireworks on July 4th
More than 850,000 people are expected to come to the waterfront to watch the Big Bay Boom July 4th Fireworks Show this year! This annual extravaganza promises to be another spectacular display over San Diego Bay. Fireworks will be discharged simultaneously from barges placed strategically around the Bay off Shelter Island, Harbor Island, Embarcadero North, Seaport Village, Embarcadero South Marina Park and Coronado Ferry Landing. The impeccably choreographed display will last approximately 17 minutes.
Fireworks will begin at 9:00 PM. The fireworks score is simulcast live on Walrus 105.7 FM. Given the extraordinary size of the crowd, the Port of San Diego strongly encourages carpooling or taking the San Diego Trolley. The Port of San Diego has set up free parking lots with shuttle service to Harbor Island and Shelter Island. The parking lots will open at 5:30 PM on July 4.
Free Shuttle Service starts at 6:00 PM. Old Town Trolley and Five Star Tours will be providing free shuttle service to Shelter Island and Harbor Island for the fireworks show. Shuttles will begin departing at 6:00 PM from the Port of San Diego Administration Building parking lot at 3165 Pacific Highway, San Diego and near the West Marine parking lot at 3717 Rosecrans Street, San Diego. The shuttles will also begin taking people back to their cars right after the fireworks show. Shuttle service will end at 11:00 PM.
