KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - City officials have a message for Fourth of July revelers: Have fun, safely.
If you're headed out for the holiday, it's also a good idea to check for special rules or road closures in place.
One of the big attractions on July Fourth will be the 70th annual Kailua Independence Day parade. The event is slated to kick off at 10 a.m. at Palapu Street and proceeds to Kailua Intermediate School on Kainalu Drive.
If you've never been, it's worth fighting to secure a spot along the parade route.
For those planning to celebrate at Ala Moana Regional Park, here's some good news: The city will allow overnight camping so people can grab good spots early.
If you don't want to stay the night, plan on arriving early. The park will open at 4 a.m., and it's expected to fill up quickly.
