The Spirit of the Fourth board has decided to cancel ALL of our usual July 4th events for 2021 except for the fireworks display and evening entertainment at the Rancho Bernardo High School complex. Fireworks viewers will be permitted to park vehicles in the High School Student Parking Lot south of the Bronco Stadium accessible from Avenida Venusto. Viewers will be required to park only in every other parking space, allowing for social distancing and room for chairs, etc, in the open space between vehicles. Picnicking is encouraged but, of course, alcoholic beverages are not permitted on school property.
Monetary donations at the parking lot will be expected and necessary to offset the expenses of conducting the fireworks show, security, insurance, and rental of the parking lot spaces from the school board. The usual fundraising from sponsorships and grants have been severely restricted this year.
Members of the "Freedom Club" will have parking in the staff parking lot adjacent to the Bernardo Heights Middle School, accessible from Paseo Lucido.
When the parking lots reach capacity, viewers will be required to park on adjacent city streets.
The "US" Band will provide entertainment near the Performing Arts Center beginning about 6:00 PM before the fireworks show begins about 9:00 PM. More details later.
Viewers must remain in the parking lot areas. No access to the campus proper or the athletic fields will be permitted.
