Ventura Fireworks show - July Fourth 4th 2015

Ventura 4th July Fireworks Show and Family Picnic!


The Rotary Club is proud to present "We the People" a fireworks tribute to our national heritage. As our nation's favorite time of year approaches, our team down at The Rotary Club have been working tirelessly to give you our most exciting, and fun filled year yet.

Taking place at Ventura County College Athletic Fields, there's no better place to celebrate than right here in Ventura - and the home of our 'Pirates!' We will be treating you to live music against the backdrop of our beautiful home town, whilst you unwind from a busy day at the parade. Meanwhile the kids wear themselves out in our fantastic 'Kid Fun Zone' will have more bounce houss than ever before - including the largest bounce house we could find (it's being brought up from LA just for this event!!!)

We will have a selection of food vendors available throughout the course of the evening, whether it's for those who haven't packed a picnic - or simply for those who are extra peckish from a long day of waving the flag! For our "Grand Finale' you will be watching the sky light up with color during an extravagant fireworks "Sky Concert", professionally produced by Souza Productions -- a California-based company that goes WAY beyond the "pre-packed shows from China". 

We are looking forward to celebrating with you in the heart of Ventura! So grab your picnic blankets, lawn chairs, and your American spirit, and head down to Ventura College from 5pm! Please remember that Pets, Alcohol, and Glass bottles are not permitted on the campus grounds.

Tickets may be pre-purchased at McDonalds or Vons and cost $6 per adult (13 years old and up) and $4 per child (ages 4-12) if purchased pre-sale. Tickets are also available ONLINE including "best value" Family Packs for 4, 5, 6, and 8 entrants.  After 5 pm on July 4th, all tickets are sold at "gate prices" of $8 per adult and $6 per child. Children ages 3 and under are free. Tickets are also available at the pre-sale rates on the morning of July 4 at the City of Ventura booth at the 4th of July Street Fair in downtown Ventura.
