PASADENA (CBS) — Final preparations for the Rose Bowl’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show are getting underway.

Roughly 8,000 pounds of fire retardant chemicals will be sprayed on the brush surrounding the Rose Bowl before Monday’s show.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports.

Fire crews held a safety drill Wednesday morning in an attempt to prevent any wildfires a malfunction could potentially trigger.

Authorities are reminding residents and attendees that the sale and possession of fireworks is illegal in Pasadena, as well as most areas in Los Angeles County.

They instead recommend heading to a professional show. Be sure to check out our list of fireworks displays.

    I am glad they charge at this event because that keeps low life ghetto people and illegals from attending, they just go to their “free” local show at the park which is paid for by taxes from the people who work.

      Oscar, you are so right. No I know where to go to get away from these people on 4th of July.

  2. ICE says:

    I guess we’re not going to see Oscar and Adolfo at any of these paid family events. So don’t put down the leaf blower just yet boys.

  3. Uncle Sam1776 says:

    Illegals should not celbrate the 4th of July as this is not their country!

    “Genetically Inferior”, really? Do you believe the fictitious “Master Race”, exists as well? I suppose no one has ever crossed from Canada, made the swim from Cuba or over stayed their visiting Visas. This has to be the “Crown Jewel” of stupid and ignorant comments. Adolfo, your intellect speaks very poorly of you and your level of education. Please, do not procreate.
