The 4th of July is upon us and there is no better way to show off your freedom than being at the beach, wearing red, white and blue, and watching colorful explosions gloriously burst in the night sky. Here in Los Angeles we are spoiled with tons of great firework shows…so we put together a list of all of the places you can see the rockets red glare in the South Bay this Saturday night!
