Holiday Inn – Burbank

This is a little unconventional,  one 4th of July night after returing from the Middle East, with total jetlag from a 12-hour flight, just to run into the arms of my little one yelling, “fireworks, I want to see fireworks!” I had to come up with something fast, free and furious…hmm? Where is the tallest building in Burbank that might have a rooftop, or something compatible with viewing the Starlight Bowl fireworks? The Holiday Inn! Of course, and they have an amazing glass exterior elevator. The staff was awesome and didn’t seem to mind the two of us riding the elevator, getting off of the top floor and catching the fireworks along with a few other hotel guests. Shhh.  Don’t blab this all over town, but if you are in a pinch they are were nice and be sure to go downstairs and order food and drinks in their restaurant! 150 E Angeleno Ave

Salsa Dance Party – Olivia’s in Burbank

Local Yocal Tips – Burbank

Another idea is to drive up Magnolia Blvd towards the hill and up near the Golf course are grassy areas where many local families throw a blanket and watch the fireworks with their kids.

we’ve got some stunning firework displays over lake Kuchajda in Bratislava, Slovakia. Don’t the three fireworks in the front look like giant sparklers? And their reflection is near perfect. Fireworks, incidentally, were invented in China as far back as the 7th century. Even today, China is the world’s largest fireworks manufacturer and exporter.
