The fourth in L.A is always a fun time of the year. Personally, the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday, everyone is festive in their red, white, and blue, there are fireworks, and there are always fun parades and barbeques to attend.

However, it can be sometimes hard to figure out what to do on the fourth, so here are some fun things to do with your friends or family on the fourth!

1. Fourth of July outdoor movie at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery!

This a super cute event that the Hollywood Forever hosts each year. Cuddle up with blankets, friends, food, and watch a movie all together! This year's movie showing is Footloose and the fireworks are supposed to be great!

Tickets may be sold out, but if you can grab a few tickets this is a really fun event to attend!


2. Pacific Palisades Fourth of July Parade

If you wanted to go to a parade, the Pacific Palisades parade is a great way to spend the fourth. The streets are decorated and they even have an award for the most patriotic house! If you want to spend the fourth with your family, this would be a fun activity to do all together! They also have events scattered throughout the day, so if you want you could make it an all day event.


3. Marina Del Rey Fourth

Marina Del Rey always has fun things going on for the fourth. The weather will be beautiful because it is by the beach and they set fireworks off at the marina. Fisherman's village has oceanfront shops, cute restaurants, and daily boat rides that will make the fourth spectacular. If you don't want to go all the way to Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica and other beaches like Malibu always have activities going on for the fourth. Going to the beach is a really popular activity so just make sure you have plenty of time to find beach parking!

4. Lake Arrowhead Roadtrip

If you are down for a two hour drive to Lake Arrowhead, they have an adorable fourth celebration every year. Go down with a few friends for a day or two to chill by the lake and watch fireworks at night!

5. Throw a party!

Grab some friends, get some fourth of July decorations, and some yummy food and you have a perfect fourth! A barbeque, sparklers, and smores sound like a great way to spend your fourth and it's fantastic for the people who don't want to drive around LA or don't have crazy plans for the holiday.

There you have some simple yet easy ways to spend your Fourth in LA! I hope you have a great holiday.
