Southern California will take to the sky again for the Fourth of July, providing sparkling spectacles in the form of fireworks shows for the entire family to enjoy.

Because Independence Day falls on a Monday in 2022, some events will take place over the weekend.

Here are the best places for sky gazers to catch shows. 

Hollywood Bowl: Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, this famous venue will be hosting a July 4th fireworks spectacular with Steve Martin and Martin Short. There are shows Saturday, Sunday and Monday that begin at 7:30 p.m. Thomas Wilkins and the Los Angeles Philharmonic join these comedic legends for a Fourth of July tradition in the heart of Hollywood. Ticket prices vary from $21 to $305.
