A crescendo of torch lights and drums climax with the spectacular fireworks display at 7:45pm. Rockin’ Hawaiian Rainbow Review takes place at the resort’s Super Pool.The $20 entrance fee for the show includes a Mai Tai punch or non-alcoholic punch per person.

Again, viewing the fireworks show is free to watch.
Advice for watching the Hilton Hawaiian Village fireworks shows:
- The closer you are to the fireworks, the more dramatic they appear. If you plan to watch the fireworks from the resort’s Super Pool, near the Duke Kahanomoku Lagoon or from the beach, you may want to review the resort map.
- If you prefer to watch the fireworks from elsewhere on Waikiki Beach, bear in mind that the fireworks are not visible from every spot on Waikiki Beach. Take a look at the following Google Map and take note of the curvature of Waikiki Beach. Hilton Hawaiian Village is noted with the red place marker.

- A sunset picnic on Waikiki Beach makes a nice addition prior to the fireworks shows.
Mahalo to Hilton Hawaiian Village for hosting both Tuesday and Friday night fireworks shows. What a wonderful gift to visitors and locals!
