The City of Santa Clara will celebrate July 4th with the return of the Fireworks Extravaganza Show in Santa Clara’s Central Park on Thursday, July 4, 2013 from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. Arrive hungry and bring your lawn chairs or blankets to sit on the lawn and enjoy the evening.
Festivities will begin on the stage adjacent to the Community Recreation Center (969 Kiely Blvd.) with live entertainment starting at 5:00 p.m. featuring the Buchser Middle School Jazz Band and the De´ja` Vu Jazz Band, directed by David Ladd Anderson. The Groove Kings, a Soul inspired Rock 'n Roll Band will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Grab a bite to eat along Kiely Blvd.’s Food Truck Row, or grab a snack from one of the local non-profit organizations supporting the event.
The finale will be a fantastic Fireworks Extravaganza at 9:30 p.m. with patriotic music and a sky ablaze with colors and special effects—admission is free!
(Yana is also doing a movie night followed by Fireworks at Great America on Friday night.) So come on out and celebrate our Independence Day! I’m planning on going around 7:30pm due to a previous commitment.
