Contributions to fund the City of San Marcos’ annual Fourth of July Celebration and Fireworks Extravaganza are being sought from community members and businesses. The popular fireworks display is funded entirely by these generous donations, not by city tax dollars. Donations will be accepted now through Monday, June 26.

“Offered for more than 36 years of spirited family fun, this annual event offers residents a way to safely enjoy fireworks while celebrating our nation’s independence,” said Community Services Director Buck Martin. “With children’s activities, food for purchase and a great pyrotechnic display, this event has something for everyone.”

People interested in donating to the Fourth of July Celebration may send their tax deductible contribution to the San Marcos Fourth of July Fund, 3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, 92069. Online donations may also be made by visiting www.gofundme.com/SM2017Fireworks and clicking on the donation amount desired on the homepage.

The event will take place at Bradley Park, 1587 Linda Vista Drive, with live entertainment starting at 6 pm and the fireworks display at 9 pm. Carnival games, jumpers and food sales will be available on-site.

For more information, please call the San Marcos Community Services Department at (760) 744-9000.
