Get Ready For The 4th Of July – But Some Places Will Be Fireworks-Free

 


LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The 4th of July is right around the corner and that means barbecues, going to the beach, movies, and of course, lots of fireworks.

But due to many budget issues this year, some cities are curtailing or canceling their fireworks shows altogether.

Redondo Beach is one city that won’t let budget constraints get in their way. In fact, they are making their show even bigger. They’re expecting an influx of folks who will make their first appearance here with other shows in the area being canceled.

CITIES NOT CELEBRATING WITH FIREWORKS:

Torrance
Marina del Rey
Inglewood (they actually stopped several years ago.)
Lawndale (the city cites construction and renovations at Lawndale High as the reason)
Lomita (ended their show several years ago.)

CITIES WHO ARE:

Carson (a show at the Home Depot Center after the Galaxy game)
El Segundo
Gardena
San Pedro (there will be a scaled down show at Cabrillo Beach.)

Hansen Dam Recreation Area (San Fernando Valley, laparks.org)
Irwindale Speedway (July 2, $15-25)
Woodland Hills (Dennis Zine’s annual event, Warner Park, Woodland Hills, free, parking $15)
Porter Ranch (Shepherd of the Hills Church, free)

And, our personal fave (we’re biased!) the July 4th Fireworks Festival in Studio City on the CBS Radford Lot, 4024 Radford. More info, including tickets and prices, http://www.studiocitychamber.com.
