But would Kailua resident be willing to pay for this annual tradition and if so, how much?
"If they did a fee, I wouldn't mind paying $15 or under," said Kailua resident Julie Nguyen-Livic.
In fact, the Kailua fireworks committee will be asking for four dollars this July.
"We're going to kick off campaign "4 for the fourth", and we will be asking every resident or those who come to the fireworks show to give four dollars," said Sakaba.
That money will go to the $70,000 cost of the show, which pays for more than just the pyrotechnics, but also police, permitting and signs needed for the big event at the beach.
"Oh that's reasonable, I was thinking about $5," said Kailua resident Howell Mahoe.
Sakaba said while they are focused on getting this year's fireworks show off the ground, there is hope more contributions by the community will lead to an all day celebration in the future.
Any extra money raised this year will go to the display in 2014.
