It’s that time of year again. On December 13 families are encouraged to come out and enjoy the 27th annual Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks event. The event begins at 4:00 PM and lasts until 7:00 PM. It’s a fun way to get out of the house and to celebrate the holidays, complete with music, a snow park, bouncy house and finally a set of high quality fireworks voted the Best Holiday Fireworks in the Nation by the Travel Channel.
The fun-filled day will host a variety of musical performances to keep festive music going during the event. Joe’s Band will start the day off with holiday music and family sing-alongs. The Mira Costa HS Jazz Ensemble will also be performing a selection of holiday pieces. The Hyperion Outfall and Ari Perelmuter will also be performing during the event. Each of the musical performances is sponsored by LAcarGUY and should help to give the event a festive feel.
Get Into the Holiday Spirit at the Snow Park
One of the main draws of the Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks event is the snow park for kids. It’s put on by Skechers and offers a total of five 50′ sled runs and two different snow areas for children. Give your children a chance to play in some snow and take a bunch of family photos at the event. There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit while keeping your children occupied outdoors.
Of course no holiday celebration would be complete without the opportunity to meet with Santa. Santa will glide in on his float and take the time to meet and greet with the children and make himself available for photos.
Go Crazy at the Bounce Park
A set of giant slides and a massive shark offer plenty of bouncing opportunities for all the children present. Children can swoop down the massive slides and jump around like crazy within the mouth of the shark. It’s a fun opportunity for the little ones that want to burn up some energy.
Cap of the Night with a Shower of Lights
Finally the night will complete at 7:00 with a spectacle of holiday fireworks. The sky will glow with blazing reds, oranges, purples and pinks. It’s the perfect way to finish off the night before heading home to relax.
Join us for some fun holiday entertainment at the 26th annual Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks festival on December 14th. This all-day event gives children a chance to play in snow and experience sledding.

The Bounce Park
There’s something cool about bouncing in the mouth of a shark, and that’s exactly what your little ones can do at the Union Bank Bounce Park during the Holiday Festival. The bounce house looks like a massive shark surfing along the swells, and children can take turns climbing inside and bouncing off some of that built-up energy.
