Deck the Halls – Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks Tonight!

34th Annual Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks Display

Fireworks in Manhattan Beach

Another evening of festivities is happening at the Manhattan Pier as tonight (12/11) is the 34th annual holiday fireworks. They start blasting off at 7pm. Don’t miss it!

The annual event started as a way for local business leaders to kick-off the holiday season, and give something back to Manhattan Beach. The deed has flourished – and this spirit of sharing is nowhere more apparent than here, as quoted from the Beach Reporter from the founder and producer:

“If you want to feel a sense of community, there is nothing like the annual Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks show. It’s as if the entire town comes to the pier to see the show and see their neighbors… By the time the sun sets and the fireworks explode, the merriest people in the world …are probably the people sitting on Manhattan Beach Boulevard, wrapped in blankets and gazing into the night sky”

So come out and join me as we once again soak-in this great event and create new memories with family, friends and neighbors.

Pete Moffett MB Holiday Fireworks founder and producer

Here’s the night’s event lineup:

  • 3:00pm – 4:00pm – Sketchers snow park opens to Friendship Foundation

30th Annual Manhattan Beach Pier Lighting and Holiday Kickoff

There’s no place like home for the holidays.  Especially if home is in the South Bay!  On of the events that really seems to kick off the holiday season in the South Bay is the pier lighting ceremony in Manhattan Beach.  The lighting is just the reason to have an event but the evening is filled with activities and community spirit and is a great way to bump into friends and family.  It’s not only a fun event but the green lights on the roundhouse at the end of the pier in the shape of a tree is a pretty iconic image for those of us fortunate enough to live in the area.
