With coronavirus concerns extinguishing a majority of the scheduled firework show across Orange County, the question remains, is the Fourth of July canceled?
While on any other year, you could bet on firework demonstrations across the county, this year there are only 3 cities that are still planning on lighting up the sky this Saturday.
Monarch Beach Resort will be hosting a fireworks show on the beach exclusively for resort guests and members. The show will begin at 9:00pm on Saturday. Click here for details.
The city is hosting its fireworks show, but for people to watch from home. There will be no festival at the park this year, La Bonita Park will be closed. Go to titanradio.org/lahabrajuly4 to hear the music that goes with the fireworks, which will start at 8:50 p.m.
During the day, there will be a flyover of the city featuring vintage planes at 2:30; they will fly over Orange at 2 p.m. and Buena Park at 2:15 p.m.
Located at the Joint Forces Training Base
