Fireworks Display 2012
The Fireworks are back again this year! Due to budget restrictions, there were no fireworks in 2011.
Fireworks begin at 9:30pm at the Port of Redwood City. The fireworks can be
seen from downtown and anywhere west of Highway 101 where there is a clear
view of the skies above the Port. Wear layers and bring a jacket — it can get very
chilly at night.
