Fourth of July Fireworks

What would Independence Day be without the famous foggy Fourth of July fireworks display over the bay? Thousands flock to the waterfront in hopes of clear skies after spending the day enjoying Pier 39 and surrounding neighborhoods. The first boom begins at about 9pm. Pro tip: Don’t drive, as parking can get pretty intense.
