This year 4th of July lands on a Saturday, so expect large crowds. Don’t let the crowds scare you away, it is still worth attending. San Francisco has one of the best displays of fireworks in the country. Around 9:30pm on the 4th, over 10,000 fireworks will be showcased over San Francisco Bay. Fireworks go out from two locations: Pier 39 & Municipal Pier.

Plan your day well and you will enjoy front row seats at the waterfront or jump on a cruise for a change. The show lasts around 30 minutes. We recommend getting in early and using public transport since a lot of the roads will be closed for this memorable 4th of July event.
