The City of Fullerton's Annual 4th of July Fireworks Festival event is cancelled for 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the State of California has public health directives in place that prohibit community mass gatherings. Further, the recent trend of persons testing positive in Orange County is being attributed to increased gatherings and loosening of restrictions. It is in the best interest of the community's health to not hold the event this year in order to prevent further spread of the disease. The majority of Orange County cities are similarly cancelling their Fourth of July celebrations. Fullerton residents are encouraged to enjoy Independence Day safely by celebrating with legal, safe, and sane fireworks. For those who want the sparkle of a fireworks Fourth; local non-profit fireworks booths open on July 1st.

In addition to being illegal, the aerial fireworks are upsetting to local pets, children, seniors, and Veterans. Please respect your neighbor and abide by the law.
