4th of July Fireworks in Carlsbad
Summer is here and the 4th of July holiday is around the corner, with plenty of celebrations and fireworks in and around Carlsbad, along with private festivities, cookouts and picnics. There will be crowds at the beach and lots of friends and family gatherings.
It’s an odd holiday this year, with the 4th occurring in the middle of the week on Wednesday.
Not surprisingly public parking is a premium at our Carlsbad beaches, especially over this popular holiday, so plan accordingly. Here are the popular Carlsbad fireworks events to enjoy July 4th:
Red, White and BOOM
This is the popular annual celebration and fireworks at Carlsbad’s famous Legoland on July 4th with fun for all ages. Come enjoy 60+ rides, shows, and other attractions, plus games (a LEGO hamburger relay, water balloon toss, burlap sack races), and a first this year - a costume parade.
The Legoland fireworks are visible for miles – popular, also, with those who live nearby. Red, White and BOOM runs from 1 pm until 9 pm, and the Legoland fireworks accompanied by patriotic music start at 8:30 PM. All festivities for Red, White and Boom are included in the admission price.
Fireworks at the Omni La Costa Resort
The fireworks at the famed Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in South Carlsbad (La Costa) have been popular with guests and area residents for many years. The Omni La Costa Resort offers all sorts of events leading up to and following the big day, and you can count of plenty of crowds.
The fireworks take place Wednesday night, July 4th, over the golf course, from 9 – 9:25 PM, and are typically visible from all over South Carlsbad and parts of north Encinitas depending on the marine layer!
Fireworks at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort
Another favorite in Carlsbad are the 4th of July festivities at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in the Aviara area, just west of the La Costa area. The fun includes a huge buffet in the Palm Courtyard and live music, followed by their popular poolside fireworks starting at 9 pm (beverages will be available for purchase). Call (760) 603-3773 for more information and reservations.
And depending on where you are, you can see fireworks from both Aviara and La Costa!
