Fullerton, Ca – The July 4th tradition continues in the City of Fullerton as they prepare for its annual Independence Day celebration with its 24th Annual Community Fireworks Show and Festival.
        
The festival will be held from 5:00 - 9:30 p.m. at the Fullerton High School Stadium, which is located on the southwest corner of the intersection of Berkeley Avenue and Lemon Street. No alcohol, animals, personal fireworks, glass, canopies or umbrellas will be allowed in the stadium.           

Admission is free.

Entertainment for the night will be provided by "The Jann Browne Band."  Browne, a country music artist, has twice been named “Entertainer of the Year” by the California Country Music Association.  Her first album, “Tell Me Why,” produced two Top 20 hits, and a number one video on CMT, the country music cable channel.

Games and food booths sponsored as fund-raisers by non-profit Fullerton organizations will mark the event, which will be topped off by an aerial fireworks display set to music by Pyro Spectaculars of Rialto at 9 p.m.  

Other activities lined up for the evening includes pony rides, stilt-walkers, balloon artists, bounce houses, face painting and more. 

A nominal fee will be charged for the children's rides.

Free parking for the fireworks festival will be available at the Plummer Parking Structure, located at the southwest corner of Lemon and Chapman Avenue; the Wilshire Parking Structure, located on Wilshire Avenue, one block east of Harbor Boulevard;  and the North Orange County Municipal Court, 1275 N. Berkeley, west of Harbor.          

Further information about the Community Fireworks Show and Festival may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545.

With the Fireworks festivities, the weekly Thursday night Fullerton Market will be closed on July 4 but will re-open the following week on July  11.          

Persons requiring special accommodations are requested to contact the department prior to July 4.
