Preventing injuries and, of course, fires are always priorities during the 4th of July season. There are many potential hazards including swimming, fireworks, barbeque grilling, lots of sun exposure and alcoholic drinks.
Celebrations begin this weekend around town and the Los Angeles Fire Department has helped compile a list of professionally produced shows around LA County at: safejuly4th.org. In the Silverlake – Echo Park area, there’s the Dodger Stadium fireworks show which will light up the skies after the 6:10 game. Around Los Feliz, there’s the Hollywood Bowl fireworks show which will be launched with the Barry Manilow performance, which starts at 7:30pm. In the Pasadena area, The Rose Bowl will be having their 86th Annual 4th of July Celebration from 9am on with fireworks beginning at 9:30pm. And the Eagle Rock Rec Center will have a 4th of July celebration from 5-9:30pm on July 1st if you want to start early. Have fun and be safe.
