Many Oahu residents are camping out on Independence Day to have a day off at the beach and watch the fireworks at night.
This year's camping regulations remain the same as last year.
The public is allowed to set up tents Tuesday night, but nothing fully enclosed will be allowed. You can still set up picnic areas and canopies with one flap.
But, all cars must leave the park by 10 p.m. Tuesday with only one person staying overnight to watch your belongings.
The parking lot will reopen at 4 a.m. Wednesday, but police officers will not be allowing drivers to line up and wait at the entrance.
"They think it's a holiday and there are no rules," said Sgt. Deric Valoroso. of the Honolulu Police Department. "You got to park in stalls and not in the red zone and tow away zones. It's business as usual everyday. It's just that it happens to be a holiday."
HPD encourages drivers to be safe and to be fair.
All park rules apply, which means no alcohol and no personal fireworks.
