Culver's Annual 4TH Of July Fireworks Show Returns

 

On the evening of Saturday, July 4. Gates will open at 4 pm and fireworks begin at dusk at West Los Angeles College, located just north of the Westfield Culver City mall on Overland near Jefferson at 9000 Overland Avenue.

The suggested donation is $5 per person ($0 for children age 5 and under). Parking is $10 and limited. To encourage carpooling, this year the maximum admission donation for four or more guests in a single vehicle is $20 plus the parking fee. That means a car with six passengers will pay only $30, not $40. Commercial vans, buses and mini-buses are excluded from the "Car Pool Deal". Also, guests may catch the Culver City Green Bus to the college which will be running a special route from the Culver Westfield Mall to Overland and Venice with stops on both Sepulveda and Overland. The fare is just $1.00 each way.

"Thousands attended last year which was our first time holding the event at West," said Xavier Nuques the Exchange Club's event co-chair. "This year promises to be even better. The fireworks show will be longer with more rockets firing. We're also adding more food trucks and carnival games for the kids too." The food vendors include, among others, Cousins Maine Lobsters, Slammin' Sliders, The Carnival Truck, Angie's Wieners, CJs Wings, Boba Ni Taco, and Paradise Cookies. These are favorites at LA hot spots and at events like Street Food Cinema. The Dogtown Dogs truck was described by the LA Times as one of the best places to get a bacon-wrapped dog.

Guests may bring picnic baskets and blankets. Chairs with sharp edges that could field's artificial turf are prohibited as are pets, alcoholic beverages and smoking. Grandstands seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Handicapped accessible seating and parking are available.

Starting at 6 pm, Cover 2 Cover will entertain the crowd with their classic pop and rock stylings. Raffle tickets will be sold for prizes including a big screen TV, an aerial tour of Los Angeles, and a luxury hotel stay.

Proceeds from this Culver City Exchange Club event are donated to the community in the form of grants and scholarships to deserving students and local organizations such as the Culver City Unified School District, the Culver City Youth Health Center, The Culver-Palms Family YMCA, and the Booster Clubs at all Culver City schools.
