The City fireworks show will begin at approximately 9pm. The City fireworks show will originate from Monument Point at Heisler Park. For this reason, the Monument Point area will be closed all day on the 4th of July. Beginning at approximately 5pm, the area of Heisler Park from the Rock Bench at Myrtle Street to the Rockpile Beach stairs at Jasmine Street will be closed to the public to allow for fireworks preparation. Reminder: parking meters and City parking lots are enforced on July 4.

City Trolleys will operate under a modified schedule, all trolley routes will run from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The normal trolley schedule will resume on July 5.

After the fireworks show, expect heavy traffic as many visitors will be leaving via Laguna Canyon Road and Coast Highway. Members of the Police Department will be conducting increased traffic control to facilitate the flow of vehicles out of town.
