Independence Day 2020 will be different this year. Community celebrations have been canceled due to COVID-19. Instead, this will be a more backyard Fourth of July celebrated with family and friends.
When you stay in our Kauai vacation rentals next July 4th, here are the tropical celebrations you will see with fireworks. When 2021 dates are set, we will post them here. The moon will be full so expect brilliant colors in the evening sky against a backdrop of palm trees. You will find everything here including Hawaii fireworks and local Hawaiian entertainment.
