Hollywood celebrates July 4: Fireworks, music and more

Hollywood pulls out the red carpet when it comes to the July 4th celebration. This year there are over 25 different firework displays in the Los Angeles area. While each offer up the best display possible in the sky, the locals in Hollywood head to the Hollywood Bowl to enjoy an evening of music, food and then the big display.

The Hollywood Bowl celebration has become a ritual for folks who really want to enjoy the holiday in style. In 2015, Smokey Robinson and the Los Angeles Philharmonic will be on stage prior to the big fireworks display. The anticipation to hear patriotic music, as well as a popular American singer has people flocking to the Hollywood Bowl prior to the fireworks. Add that this venue is a perfect place for a picnic, and it’s one of the best places in town to celebrate.

Another big venue that brings in the Southern California crowds is the Rose Bowl. It’s the 89th Annual Fourth of July Celebration at the stadium and this year the folks will get to see the biggest fireworks display in Southern California. Before the sky lights up, there are activities planned all day, including live music, motorcycle stuntmen and after the show a viewing of the movie Despicable Me 2.

There is so much to see and do in Hollywood over the July 4th weekend that even the celebrities will be busy attending events.

Happy 4th of July!
