Honolulu has some of the best fireworks around and especially in the Hawaiian Islands. But that doesn’t mean you have to go into the thick of things and venture down to Ala Moana Beach Park for the fireworks this weekend.
There are plenty of places around Oahu that have fireworks on July 3rd and 4th.
July 3rd, 2011
First up has to be the fireworks on July 3rd at Aloha Tower in Honolulu. Fireworks at 8:45 pm. These are usually amazing fireworks and some people will say, just as good as the Ala Moana Fireworks on the fourth, but we’ll leave that for you to decide.
You can see these fireworks from all over the south shore, a spot up on Round Top might be one of the best spots to watch, but if you’re looking for a little more festivities, you may want to take the family down to Aloha Tower Marketplace. There will be activities, music, and food starting at 4pm and going until the fireworks.
You could also see these fireworks from Waikiki, although sometimes blocked a little, but a view from Waikiki could come after the Honolulu 4th of July Parade (on the 3rd) and then head down to Sunset on the Beach with Soul Surfer and Bethany Hamilton.
