Fourth of July at Dodger Stadium

WHEN: Thursday, July 4 | 6:10pm

Hollywood Bowl Fireworks with Harry Connick Jr.

WHEN: July 2-4 | 7:30pm
WHERE: The Hollywood Bowl
WHAT: What could be better than fireworks and food at the Hollywood Bowl? Oh, we know — a little bit of Harry Connick Jr. with Thomas Wilkins and the LA Phil. While you enjoy an exciting night of songs, fireworks, and fun, you can munch on an array of delish bites from James Beard award-winning chef Suzanne Goin and restauranteur Caroline Styne. If you’re in a box seat, pre-order a full meal delivered right to your seat or pick up a Picnic Box before the show. Not a box seat ticket holder? The food options are endless.
