5 Exciting Things To Do & Eat Over The 4th Of July

Pop-ups, music festivals, and of course, fireworks.

Seems like just days ago we were begging for the start of summer and now it’s already July 4th weekend? Time isn’t real. At any rate, this weekend is packed with all sorts of events including music festivals, international pop-ups, and of course, fireworks.

THE EVENTS

COOL OFF WITH SHAVED ICE

One of the most exciting—and certainly weather-appropriate—pop-ups of the summer is back this weekend running from July 2nd to July 3rd. In collaboration with Create Japan, Wanderlust and Kuramoto Ice will be serving a variety of different kakigori, or Japanese shaved ice, from Wanderlust’s Venice location. This event is reservation only and is $20 per ticket.

STARE AT SOME FIREWORKS 

We probably don’t need to remind anyone that there’s going to be fireworks this weekend, but in the event you want to see something official, you can catch shows everywhere from Burbank and Hollywood Bowl to Marina Del Rey and Woodland Hills. Or you can just do what everyone else does and text a friend with roof access.

DO SOME SHOPPING

SHAKE YOUR BUTT

In case you aren’t glued to the Zodiac like we are, it’s officially Cancer season, and this Friday, July 1st, Gay Asstrology is throwing a dance party in their honor. Taking place from 9pm-2am in Hollywood, the queer-focused event is entirely outdoors and general admission is $18—unless your sign is Cancer, in which case, you get in for free.

CHECK OUT A MUSIC FESTIVAL 

We’re pretty sure most people aren't in love with life right now, but at least you can pretend to be this weekend at the Loving Life Festival. The EDM-heavy experience is going down this Saturday, July 2nd through Sunday, July 3rd at the Los Angeles Center Studios in downtown. General admission ranges from $32-$66, but VIP cabana packages run up to $4,000.
