Fourth of July fireworks show planned in Culver City
OW Staff Writer | 6/22/2017, midnight
The Culver City Exchange Club’s 51st Annual July 4th Fireworks Show will be held at West Los Angeles College on the evening of Tuesday, July 4. Gates open at 4 p.m. and fireworks begin at dusk. West Los Angeles College is located just north of the Westfield Culver City mall on Overland near Jefferson at 9000 Overland Ave.
The suggested donation is $5 per person (free for children age 5 and under). Parking is $10 and limited. To encourage carpooling, the maximum admission donation for four or more guests in a single vehicle is $20 plus the parking fee. That means a car with six passengers will pay only $30, not $40.
Commercial vans, buses and mini-buses are excluded from the “Car Pool Deal”. The Culver CityBus will run a special $1 shuttle from the Culver City Transit Center next to the Westfield Mall to the college. Additionally, the Culver City buses will run on their holiday schedule which can be found at www.CulverCity.org.
Fireworks viewing will be on the college baseball and practice field. Activities for the kids, gourmet food trucks and the raffle tent will be located in the adjacent parking lot. Last year, raffle prizes included a big screen TV, an aerial tour of Los Angeles, and a luxury condo stay in Las Vegas.
Guests may bring picnic baskets, blankets and low chairs. Tents are prohibited as are pets, alcoholic beverages and smoking. Handicapped accessible seating and parking are available.
Cover band Rebel Rebel will entertain the audience with crowd favorites.
Proceeds from this Culver City Exchange Club event are donated to the community in the form of grants and scholarships to deserving students and local organizations such as the Culver City Unified School District, the Culver City Youth Health Center, The Culver-Palms Family YMCA, and the Booster Clubs at all Culver City schools.
