Marina del Rey New Year’s Eve Fireworks
Get ready to party on the waterfront as Marina del Rey unleashes not one, but two dazzling pyrotechnic spectacles to welcome the new year! The sky will light up with a burst of colors and sparks at both 9 pm and the stroke of midnight (or just a minute before, because who’s counting?). The magical display will unfold near Burton Chace Park, the epicenter of a family-friendly “glow party” kicking off at 7 pm and rocking all the way until midnight. Now, here’s the scoop – all the fantastic restaurants boasting harbor views are in on the action. While some might tempt you with fancy ticket dinners at a bit of a splurge, our pro tip is to snag a prime spot along the water and soak in the fireworks for absolutely free!
