Bring your family and friends to Old Poway Park and celebrate our country’s independence "turn-of-the-20th-century-style". This event will feature patriotic entertainment, western reenactors, free children's crafts, train displays, and old-fashioned games. Tasty treats and train rides will be available for a nominal fee.
Enjoy two spectacular firework shows as they light up the sky over the Poway High School Stadium and Poway Sportsplex at 9:00pm. Gates at Poway High School open at 6:00pm for games, activities, and a DJ spinning the tunes. No registration is required, please pay at the gate. Children ages 11 and under are free with a paid adult admission ($5). Please arrive early to allow plenty of time for parking.
Fireworks will also be set off over Poway Sportsplex (12349 McIvers Court). The Poway Sportsplex will not be open to view the fireworks. Please see the link to the parking map below.
Lake Poway is open to the public on July 4 and will stay open as a viewing area for the fireworks at the high school. Please be aware that viewing is limited from the lake this year as the ballfield is closed as part of the water infrastructure capital improvement program. Parking is $10 for non-residents. Residents and active military members (with ID) are free.
A parking map for fireworks viewing is online at poway.org/fireworks-map.
