2018 Guide Where to See Fireworks in the SF Bay Area

There is something breathtaking about explosions in the sky, eliciting emotions in even the most grim and serious among us.  Scholars believe that (ironically), fireworks evoke a feeling of childhood safety.  Alternatively, it could be the fact that fireworks can be pretty dangerous that makes them so appealing.  Whatever the reason is, we want you to be able to celebrate America's birthday under a brilliantly lit night sky. We've put together a list of the very best fireworks show all around the Bay Area, so you can plan your 2018 4th of July accordingly.  If we've missed a show in your area, please add it to the list by commenting below
