Lahaina to Host July 4th Fireworks Show

2008 Update – See what major 4th of July fireworks shows are happening across Hawaii in 2008.

Looking for a great place to watch Independence Day fireworks? Then, consider Maui’s historic town of Lahaina. The fireworks show will start at 8 p.m. from a barge moored offshore. Restaurants and boat tours companies are making special plans for the evening.

Here are some of the special restaurant offerings planned for the evening:

  • The Lahaina Store Grille and Oyster Bar is offering a special “top of town�? dining experience on its rooftop, as well as excellent fireworks viewing in the restaurant through its huge ocean front windows.
  • Pick up a special Fourth of July Picnic Box with soda at The Wharf Cinema Center restaurants.
  • Blue Lagoon Tropical Bar & Grill is offering Pineapple Fried Rice and a Brownie for $7.50.
  • Pick up a Cheeseburger and Chips for $7.50 at Cool Cat Cafe.
  • Mulligan’s at the Wharf will have a special of a Club Wrap and Maui Chips.
  • Pad Thai Cuisine will pack up some Vegetable Pad Thai Tofu for $6.25, and Pho Saigon will sell a Pork Chop with scoop of rice for $7.50.

Though some of those restaurant offerings sound yummy, I think I’d rather take one of these special boat cruises to see the fireworks reflecting from the water:
