Huntington Beach 4th of July Pier Expo


Huntington Beach, Calif.4th of July Parade, Fireworks and Pier Expo are really the official launch of summer in the Orange County beach town of 200,000. On parade day alone, it's estimated approx. 250,000 attend and view the parade. The beach also enjoys a full crowd, and the Pier Plaza expo (shown in the photos above), really adds sizzle to the bang with Hebrew National All Beef Hot Dogs Jumbo and other delicious delights.

Though generally having the appearance of a casual fair with a variety of tables, displays and tent tops, the event gives an extra blast to the long day that begins for folks lining up on the parade viewing route as early as the night before. Most generally head out around 8 a.m. on July 4 to stake a seat, or find parking for their car. 


Thus the day-long expo not only feeds the mind with eye candy during the in-between times when no scheduled event of interest is happening, but it also nourishes the hungry parade marchers, beach attendees and all who spend the entire day in the sun, just having fun on the 4th of July.


Each year the vendor expo is held on the 4th of July day (it began several years ago), as an opportunity to bring in additional revenue to fund the parade that's largely paid for by a non-profit organizing group that includes a board that operates under the umbrella of the City of Huntington Beach. Support for the vendor expo helps fund all the fun that hundreds of thousands of people enjoy and look forward to each year.


Other events in Huntington Beach include races, volleyball, paintball, surfing, swimming and concerts, mostly free. When you want a summer of fun, you'll find Huntington Beach offers one of the finest outdoor experiences. But there are some popular outdoor attractions not to be missed, such as Legoland for the kids, and Disneyland for all ages.
