June 23, 2012 (El Cajon) -- The fun begins at 12:00 p.m. with the annual 4th of July Picnic at Kennedy Park, followed by a spectacular fireworks show at 9:00 p.m. Kennedy Park, a smoke and alcohol free park, is located at 1675 East Madison Avenue in El Cajon. Once again Waste Management has generously partnered with the City of El Cajon to provide fireworks for residents in the East County.
City Recreation staff and outside vendors will be on hand selling food and beverages. Disabled parking will be available at the event. General parking is limited, so plan to arrive early. El Cajon Police will have officers patrolling the park area to ensure a safe celebration.
City staff request that visitors be careful and patient driving through this and all areas of fireworks, before, during and after the fireworks show. Watch for pedestrians and busy traffic conditions.
In addition, all City offices will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th, in observance of Independence Day.
