Manhattan Beach’s Signature Holiday Event

The Holiday Fireworks have, over an entire generation, become part of the very heart and soul of our community.

The annual event started as a way for local business leaders to kick-off the holiday season, and give something back to Manhattan Beach. The deed has flourished – and this spirit of sharing is nowhere more apparent than here, as quoted from the Beach Reporter:


“If you want to feel a sense of community, there is nothing like the annual Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks show. It’s as if the entire town comes to the pier to see the show and see their neighbors…

By the time the sun sets and the fireworks explode, the merriest people in the world …are probably the people sitting on Manhattan Beach Boulevard, wrapped in blankets and gazing into the night sky”


So come out and join me as we once again soak-in this great event and create new memories with family, friends and neighbors.
