Fireworks on July 4th

There is more external traffic on July 4th in Foster City than on any other day. Find out why...

Foster City has the best July 4th fireworks display in the entire world (as far as I have seen.) 

We gather as a family on Hillsdale Blvd and pick a spot between Ryan Park and Safeway - right on the road. See the big red X on the ariel photo attached. That is where we sit. When the fireworks start, we lay down on our backs and look straight up. What a wonderful sight, right under the fireworks!

We have had guests come here from as far away as Philadelphia to watch the fireworks. Nowhere else has anyone I know ever seen fireworks so close and so overhead. 

If you go to Barnes and Noble and Hillsdale Mall around 3 PM on July 4, you will see a lot of people who come there only on July 4. They are waiting for the spectacular show.

Do you have a favorite spot? Do you have parking tips for people who come from afar?
