CORONADO, CA (June 15, 2017) -- Coronado is gearing up for the City’s annual celebration of the Fourth of July. The holiday this year falls on a Tuesday and the City expects big crowds at the beach and at many of the day’s planned activities.

The two largest events on July 4 are the Fourth of July parade at 10 a.m. along Orange Avenue, from First Street to Churchill Place, and the Fourth of July Fireworks Show over Glorietta Bay at 9 p.m.

In between, there are many other activities, including a 12K Run and 5K Run-Walk; a rough-water swim; a community concert; and a parachute demonstration in Glorietta Bay.

The Coronado Police Department put together of list of frequently asked questions on parking restrictions, parade and traffic information. The list includes questions on how early the medians open; what roads are closed during the parade; when the fireworks start; where can someone catch the bus; and what happens if a car gets towed. The Police Department has this message:

"Coronado welcomes you to enjoy the Fourth of July celebration this year, as it is expected to be a great fun-filled day. Please remember to drive safely and slow down as there are many people on foot and on bicycles in town.  Pedestrians and bicyclists, please watch for vehicles and other people around you.  Remember to lock your bikes and vehicles.  Place your valuables out of plain sight and if you are going to drink, designate a sober driver.  Please review and share this list of frequently asked questions to help make your Fourth of July safe and enjoyable."

Due to technical difficulties last year, the Fourth of July Parade was not aired live on Coronado TV as it has in years’ past. A taped version was edited and shown. The City is getting new equipment to allow for the live broadcast on Spectrum 19 and AT&T 99.
