The Rotary Club of Downtown Ventura is bringing back the 4th of July Fireworks Show and Family Picnic to Ventura College’s athletic field this coming Independence Day.
In tradition, the gates at the Ventura College athletic field will open at 5 p.m. on July 4 and the choreographed fireworks show will begin at 9 p.m. The fireworks display is the longest display in the county lasting more than 20 minutes designed and orchestrated by a renowned fireworks vendor with an impeccable safety record. Families are encouraged to make a picnic of the event and enjoy the Kid’s Zone where a $5 wristband allows a child to enjoy 8 different attractions all night long as many times as they like. The main stage will entertain families from start to finish with live local bands.
The Fireworks Show is the local Rotary Club’s largest fundraising event of the year.
Pre-sale tickets will go live on the EventBrite app in mid-June and at Vons stores in Ventura for a reduced pre-sale price of $6 per adult and $4 per child (4-12 years old, 3 and under are free), but can also be purchased the day of the event for $8/$6 online or at the gate.
