4th July LA

We arrive in LA for the last night of our 1 month adventure in The USA on the 3rd of July. We were to fly back out to Australia that day but decided to stay an extra night so we can experience 4th of July atmosphere. We fly out at 10:10 pm on the night of July 4th so will be at the airport by 6:30pm for check in. Are there any festivals, carnivals, parades in the LA area that we can go to?. We will no longer have a higher car so will be relying on public transport, our suitcases will be left at the hotel so we can get around easier. It will be my husband myself and our 9 yr old daughter and 10 year old son. Any ideas?

Honestly the big thing that happens on the 4th of July is fireworks displays, which happen at night - most around 8 or 9PM. If you have to be at the airport by 6:30PM, you're going to miss the best of it. However, an alternative would be to go to the concert at the Hollywood Bowl on the evening of July 3rd, if you are going to arrive in town early enough on the 3rd to make it over there in time. The concert that they are giving on the 3rd will be the same concert that they will perform on the 4th, complete with fireworks.

Oh, you will miss the Fireworks by a half hour or so when you take off over the ocean. One of the biggest and best Annual Hometown July 4th celebrations and Fireworks, is next to LAX and the beach, in the town of El Segundo. It's just south of the airport by blocks.

El Segundo's Fourth of July celebration will take place beginning at 10 a.m. in Recreation Park, 401 E. Sheldon St. There will be food, games, contests and music.

The fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. To buy wristbands for grandstand seats and resident priority seating, call 310-524-2700.
