The best way to describe Los Angeles 4th of July fireworks celebrations is “controlled.” The summer weather in the City of Angels can be summed up in one word: dry. As a result, there is always the danger of a spark setting off a raging inferno in the hills and valleys that ring the city. That’s why the fireworks in Los Angeles are always well coordinated and selective. One of the largest fireworks displays put on anywhere in Southern California happens at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. This is such a big event that the parking lot opens at 10:00 a.m. on the 4th and you can bet there will be people lining up for the official opening of the gates at 6:30 that night.
At the opposite end of the Los Angeles you’ll find the Palisades Americanism Parade. This is an all day event featuring an old fashioned parade, sky divers and all sorts of other entertainment leading up to the big fireworks show at Palisades Charter High School.
In between those two geographical points would be the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Fireworks. Although technically these fireworks aren’t going off at the Coliseum they can still be viewed at many downtown areas like Exposition Park. This is when having one of those skyscraper apartments in downtown LA would be a huge benefit. Finally, there also happens to be the ultimate in patriotic convergences when the LA Dodgers will play the Cincinnati Reds at Dodger Stadium followed by a fireworks display.
There are a handful of smaller fireworks displays that go on around town. For those annual events, folks know whether or not their backyard is a good vantage point. If so, then it stands to reason they should be throwing a 4th of July bash. Do you have one of those lucky homes? Has it been a few years since you opened up the gates for a 4th of July party? Maybe you can change all that. All you really need is a good grill, some burgers and hot dogs and cooler fool of ice. Your friends should be able to pitch in the rest.
If you’re going to throw a bash on the 4th then you’ll need to get the yard in shape and that might require a little assistance from a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Los Angeles. These hard working crews will show up at your home when you make a scheduled appointment. They won’t keep you waiting. In less than an hour they can probably sweep through your backyard and remove any unsightly piece of junk that needs to be tossed out. Yes, that fountain once looked nice but it has long since stopped working. And that birdbath? Way beyond attractiveness. Leave all that for the junk crew to cart away. With this help you’ll be able to open up plenty of room in your backyard for tables and chairs. What could be better than spending the 4th surrounded by friends and family in a clean backyard?
