Ooh-aah! Here's a list of Hawaii's Fourth of July fireworks shows

The Fourth of July weekend is here. And if you’re looking for fireworks shows, you’ll find them on four islands this year — Oahu, Kauai, Maui and the Big Island. Here's our complete list of free, open-to-the-public fireworks displays throughout the 50th State for the July Fourth weekend.

Happy Independence Day from the entire HAWAII Magazine ohana!

• This pyrotechnics show is not technically a holiday display. But the Hilton Hawaiian Village’s weekly fireworks display will go on as usual in Waikiki, at 7:45 p.m. Fri., July 1, at Duke Kahanamoku Beach. Then again, every Aloha Friday in Waikiki feels like a holiday, right?
