Original post made on Jun 30, 2010

The Midpeninsula skies will be quieter this Fourth of July. Still, it takes more than a recession to keep down the fireworks show at Shoreline Amphitheatre, and Redwood City's huge Fourth of July parade and festival is still on, along with several other area events.

Does anyone know, can you watch the fireworks from Shoreline park?

You can watch from Shoreline Park but there is a large barrier on the golf course around the launch area. Best to bike in, if you drive you will be there for hours after the show.

You can watch the Shoreline fireworks from Moffet road, on the bridge over route 101. Excellent view.

The fireworks viewing list above mentions Santa Clara as a place to see them tonight.
According to Santa Clara's site the fireworks have been canceled there this year.
Due to the City giving all its money to the billionaires that own the 49ers.
Mountain View seems to be about the only place to on the peninsula to see fire works tonight.

The "worst of American pop" symphony show @Shoreline starts at 830, any idea when the fireworks will be on?
