Dana Would be Proud: Independence Day goes off with a bang in Dana Point

Dana Point Times

Every year, the city of Dana Point hosts one of the best firework shows in Southern California. Gather family and friends and look toward the skies over Doheny State Beach to experience this patriotic extravaganza. The fireworks are synchronized to a captivating musical score so bring a personal FM radio device and listen to the patriotic music accompanying the fireworks on FM 88.5, KSBR. Free buses will make round trips from Dana Hills High School to Dana Point Harbor from 10 a.m.-11 p.m. The show starts promptly at 9 p.m.

“Whether you come for a day at the beach and the evening fireworks display or just for the amazing fireworks extravaganza launched from the barge off shore, this is a great 4th of July tradition,” a statement released by the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association said.

“It is one of the most popular days at Doheny, so if you’re planning to spend the day at the beach and see the fireworks in the evening, get an early start as the park fills up early. You may walk into the park any time during the day with no fee charged.”
