What would July 4 be without a great fireworks show?

It might be tempting to celebrate with your own fireworks at home, but doing so can be dangerous and is against the law in most Bay Area cities. Additionally, high winds and dry weather are a bad combination and can lead to dangerous and destructive fires. 

Lucky for us, San Francisco and the East Bay have great options for firework viewing. One of them is bound to be the perfect spot for you and your friends and family on July 4.

Be safe this July 4 and leave the fireworks to the experts!

Don’t be a statistic

According to the National Fire Prevention Association:

  • Risk of injury from fireworks is highest for those ages 15-24 and second highest for children under 10 years of age.
  • More fires happen on the 4th of July than any other day due to fireworks.

Have a safe July 4!
