This year, Mission Bay’s 3rd of July fireworks will take place starting at 9 p.m. launching from near Mission Bay Yacht Club, between the club’s shore and Crown Point Bridge.
Mission Bay, located on 27 miles of sandy shoreline in San Diego, announces the long-awaited return of its annual summer holiday firework show, taking place in the Bay at 9 p.m. on Sunday, July 3, 2023. After nearly ten years of absence, the July holiday fireworks show on Mission Bay is being brought back, entirely due to the overwhelming support and outcry of excitement from the local San Diego community, who collectively raised more than $45,000 in just a few weeks via a GoFundMe page started by Mission Bay Yacht Club’s Kathry Dryden, for the necessary permit and barge to be acquired. For nearly 30 years, fireworks lit up the summer night sky in Mission Bay and was the area’s most beloved tradition, but when the cost became too much for the Club’s budget, the show went dark in 2012.
