Below is a (boring) 30 second movie showing everybody sitting by the fire singing songs and waiting for the fireworks, then at the end of the clip is a 5 second clip of the fireworks on the 4th of July, 2011, on Linda Mar Beach, Pacifica.  Click Here for a QuickTime original movie of higher quality (WARNING: Windows users probably cannot play QuickTime!!)


Fireworks start going off on the beach at 9pm.
