  1. It’s too bad the price had to go up like that. There are a lot of families that will not be able to afford it. It’s not much money for that much food, but we always brought our own food.

    I miss the police dogs at Vet’s Stadium. The whole thing was more family friendly when our girls were kids. Hope it goes back to that someday, but I doubt it will.

    Tickets are sold out at the yacht club for this event BUT Mckenna’s is holding a party just across the bay with funds/proceeds going back to the LB Fire Department Memorial Association as well.

    i don’t understand the need to charge $25 for a fireworks show. shouldn’t it be visible for everyone regardless?

    Really dissappointed that after so many years a Long Beach tradition was moved. Bring back 4th of July Firework’s Show to Veteran’s Stadium!

    Hi I wanted to congratulate someone/anyone who put this fireworks show on. The one at Vets Stadium was hard to get into and doesn’t now exist. The Queen Marys’ fireworks is always covered over by the smoke from the fireworks if you are on the Ocean Avenue side. Now (FINALLY) we have one that can be clearly seen for free by all in Belmont Shore, Naples, Alamitos Heights, Belmont Heights, Marina Pacifica, etc. and probably a lot of Seal Beach even if you don’t go the yacht club or McKenna’s! We saw it from our balcony and it was spectacular! Will walk down to the bay next time (WE HOPE THERE WILL BE A NEXT TIME!!!!!!). Thank you LB Fire Dept. and who ever else was evolved with this wonderful show. Oh, additionally, we did not have much neighborhood illegal fireworks popping on the 3rd & 4th, so maybe this fireworks show gave the kids and adults the “fireworks fix” they needed without endangering roofs/property.
