4th of July Festival & Fireworks
We celebrate big for the 4th of July! The celebration starts with a parade through downtown — the lineup starts at 10:30 am and the parade starts at 12 pm.The parade route is H Street and 9th Street before winding its way down to 3rd Street, up to K Street, and over to Front Street. Due to the generosity of our local sponsors, the parade is free to all of those who enter the parade as well as all spectators.
Enjoy a fun run (see below), live music, food, a beer garden, merchandise and vendors all day long at Beach Front Park followed by the biggest fireworks show on the north coast (starts at dusk.) Watching the fireworks over the Battery Point Lighthouse is an amazing sight to see! Fireworks can be seen from all beaches in Crescent City.
Make a plan to attend: the Deck Party featuring the band Petty Rocks — a tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers — on Saturday, July 3 from 5-8pm, a sand castle building contest and the Children’s Fair on Friday, July 2, too!
