The 2023 Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks Show

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.

Please Note that NO DRONES are permitted at this event. Public Safety is our #1 priority.

Manhattan Police and Fire Departments will decide when it is safe for the public to spread their blankets in the street for the show later in the evening.  The target range is between 2:30 and 4:30, again public safety being the determining factor. Please cooperate with the police, they have their hands full and are only trying to avoid any issues or problems. Blanket sizes should be for one party of 10 at most.

Do not try to mark off  huge spaces so all can have a closer view of the show.

Thank you and Happy Holidays
