As the July 4 holiday approaches and fireworks go on sale locally, the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department is reminding residents that it is illegal for any person, without specific permission from the City’s administrative authority to carry or discharge any firearms, firecrackers, rockets, torpedoes or any other fireworks within any public park. Any item that explodes, rises in the air or moves about the ground or any fireworks which is not approved and labeled “Safe and Sane” by the State Fire Marshal, is illegal in California. The public is asked to voluntarily comply with the law to help lower the fireworks related incidents and promote a safe holiday experience.
An alternative to personal use of illegal fireworks is to enjoy the City's July 4th Fireworks Spectacular and Celebration at Edward Vincent Park, beginning at noon. For Additional information regarding the July 4th event, call the City’s Cultural Office at (310) 412-8700.
