Independence day is just around the corner and the South Bay is a fantastic place for Fourth of July festivities and fireworks. It really is amazing to see the fireworks sparkling off the ocean water in the beach cities. The South Bay also has huge festivals and tons of community events. We love to celebrate, so come and join us for these Fourth of July events!
Celebrate Independence Day aboard the historic battleship the USS Iowa! You will not find yourself adrift as you enjoy delicious BBQ, wet your pallet in the beer garden, and then shuffle your way through the inflatable obstacle course. Taking a ship tour and learning more about our nation’s history is a very fitting and fun way to celebrate our independence.
When: July 4 – 6, 10:00am – 4:00pm
Where: Battleship USS IOWA BB-61
