The County of Hawaii in partnership with Destination Hilo, Hawaii Explosives & Pyrotechnics, and the State of Hawaii are proud to present the Fourth of July – Hilo Bay Blast 2024. This year’s Fourth of July Celebration will feature various activities throughout the day, a performance by the Hawaii County Band at 7pm, culminating with the traditional Fireworks Exhibition at 8pm in Hilo Bay.

In order to give the public additional viewing area for the fireworks, Lihiwai Street, located within Lili’uokalani Gardens, between the entrance to Mokuola (Coconut Island) and the Isle’s parking lot will be closed to vehicular traffic on July 4th. The road will re-open on July 5th.

In an effort to make the Bayfront Shoreline accessible for prime fireworks viewing, the Bayfront Highway will be closed from 6pm to 10pm on July 4th. Gates at the Mo’oheau Bus Terminal, Mo’oheau Park Ball Field and adjacent Soccer Field will be opened to allow access to this area during the fireworks exhibition. Parking is not allowed on the sides of the highway (shoreline and along fence), or on any of the fields.

For more information please call the Culture & Education Office at 961-8706.
