The annual Tempe Fourth of July Fireworks spectacular is heald each year at Tempe Beach Park.
This amazing fireworks show is put on by the Kiwanis Club of Tempe and is consistently known as the best fireworks display in Arizona.
For the past 70 years, we have enjoyed this beautiful 4th of July celebration. Thousands of fireworks are launched from the Mill Avenue Bridge and they make the sky come alive with a dazzling display of patriotism. This is truly one of the best events held in downtown Tempe each year!
