We’re a bit spoiled where fireworks are concerned. Growing up, watching them was an annual event. Now it’s weekly, thanks to the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Every Friday at 7:45 pm, the skies light up toward the Ewa (away from Diamond Head) end of Waikiki. The show is brief, maybe 10 minutes or so, but it’s potent, and the vivid colors spilling over the ocean make for a dazzling display.
You can see the fireworks from nearly any spot on Waikiki Beach. We often watch them from the Barefoot Beach Cafe, down near the Waikiki Aquarium, where there’s a great BBQ buffet and Hawaiian music. Maybe we’ll see you there!
