Looking for New Year’s Eve fireworks in L.A.? Not this year.

Well, you know, other than the illegal ones that’ll be shot off in your neighborhood.

By Michael Juliano

If the general lack of New Year’s Eve parties hasn’t given it away, then we’re here to break some bad news: New Year’s Eve fireworks aren’t happening in L.A. this year. Fireworks shows—the official, legal ones, not the ones that blanket the city each year—are relatively rare in L.A. for NYE to begin with, and this year none of them are hosting events. If someone figures out a safe way to host a drive-in fireworks show then we’ll make sure to update this story, but otherwise, you’ll have to ring in 2021 with whatever illicit pyro you can peep from your window (and based on this year’s Fourth of July, we bet there’ll be a lot).
