Image San Diego Bay is promising another spectacular display with its eight year in the row firework show on the Big Bay July 4th. Fireworks will be discharged at the same time from four barges placed strategically around the bay off Shelter Island, Harbor Island, the Embarcadero area and Seaport Village. Music broadcasted from FM radio station KyXy 96.5 will accompany the show.

The show starts at 9 p.m. on Friday, July 4th and can be viewed from almost anywhere around the Northern portion of San Diego Bay, as well as from Embarcadero Marina Parks North and South and Coronado Tidelands Park in Coronado.
