Fireworks Social Host Poster"It’s time to have some fun and it’s time to be careful.  Everyone can have fun over the holiday being with family and friends, doing some grilling, enjoying the festivities at Frontierland Park on Tuesday (thank you Parks, Beaches and Recreation Department) and celebrating the birthday of our great nation.

At the same time, please be careful with any fireworks that you plan on using to commemorate the 4th of July.  Even the “safe and sane” fireworks need to be discharged wisely.  And keep in mind, if someone gets hurt or property is damaged as a result of the use of fireworks from your property, whether you are directly responsible or not, you can be held legally responsible.  So, please, be a great neighbor and keep Pacifica safe over the holiday."
Keith Breskin, Interim City Manager.

On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues."
