Stockton’s Waterfront Fourth of July celebration is back and better than ever for the 57th annual Barron Hilton Fireworks Extravaganza. This year’s event will kick off with an impressive display of fireworks over the delta, beginning at dusk. The fireworks will be shot off from a barge anchored off from the Mandeville Tip on the Northside of the Delta’s Deep Water Channel between Stockton and Antioch.

In addition to the plethora of fireworks, the Delta will welcome one of the biggest gatherings of private boats in Northern California. Nearly 3,000 boats and thousands of people will come together along the waterway to make the biggest party the Delta has seen all year. Make sure to check out the various events along the water during the day, like the Farmers Market or the University Plaza Waterfront Hotel’s Barbeque and Firework Celebration, featuring music, a buffet and fireworks!

Whether you come by boat, car or foot – you can catch the fireworks from many spots along the Delta including the Windmill Cove, Delta Loop and Village West Marina. Fireworks can also be seen from 8 Mile Road and Highway 12.
