Laguna Beach will observe special guidelines for Independence Day activities on Monday, July 4. Large crowds are always expected.
The city fireworks show will originate from Heisler Park’s Monument Point, which will be closed all day on July 4, including the south end of Picnic Beach and the northerly section of Rockpile beach. At 5 p.m., the southern end of Heisler Park will be closed to the public to prepare for the fireworks show, which begins at 9 p.m. City trolleys will run from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Prior to the pyrotechnics, the public is invited to join the American Legion to celebrate the nation’s 235th birthday at 11 a.m. for a sing-along of the “Star Spangled Banner,” a reading of portions of the Declaration of Independence, a ringing of bells and a flag folding ceremony.
