The USS Midway Museum’s annual 4th of July celebration, attended by 4,000 people, is the biggest family party in town! Fortunate attendees to this annually sold-out celebration watch the spectacular “Big Bay Fireworks” show from the flight deck! And, the Midway is perfectly positioned. It’s the closest venue to the four barge locations from which the fireworks are launched, offering the best view of the largest fireworks show on the West Coast.
The celebration also includes live entertainment featuring one of San Diego’s leading show bands. The band kicks off the party with an exciting USO show review followed with the most popular patriotic and fun party hits.
Savory All-American concessions are for sale along with adult and kid-friendly beverages. Guests are invited to bring a blankets, lawn chairs and small coolers with picnic-type snacks, providing affordable options for all those who attend.
Midway’s originally produced music track orchestrated for the fireworks show attracts local radio stations which broadcast in real time for the enjoyment of local listeners. It’s a patriotic celebration with plenty to do and see in honor of our nation’s birthday.
