Independence Day isn’t complete without 4th of July fireworks, those patriotically loud, colorful explosions in the night sky. After a day at one of the best beaches in L.A., cooling off with the city’s best ice cream and grilling with friends and family, normally we’d say to cap off the celebrations with a bang. But 4th of July fireworks will look a little bit different this year. From the Long Beach waterfront to Hollywood, all of L.A.’s major fireworks shows have been canceled (but we’re sure you’ll still see plenty of illegal pyro in your neighborhood all month long).
