The Fourth of July is the City’s largest holiday event of the year. This year, the holiday falls on a Monday, making it a three-day-holiday weekend. The City is expecting many residents and visitors to attend Fourth of July activities. As the City prepares for all of the weekend’s events, including the parade down Orange Avenue, it wants the community to be prepared. A list of frequently asked questions can be found on Questions range from “When do the medians open?” and “When does the parade start?” to “Where are the concerts being held?” and “Where is the best spot to watch the fireworks?” Check the full list of frequently asked questions at

Parking throughout the Fourth of July weekend will be at a premium. Locals and visitors are asked to take alternative transportation, such as the Free Summer Shuttle and bicycles. Please pay attention to no-parking signs and do not block driveways or park in red zones. If your vehicle is towed, please contact the Police Department at (619) 522-7350 or stop by the Police Department’s main lobby, 700 Orange Ave., for information on how to get you vehicle back.

Public transportation via the Metropolitan Transit System will continue to be provided at the usual bus stops. Routes normally located within the parade route, including the Free Summer Shuttle, will be relocated and reopened after the parade ends. Keep in mind, the buses will be full over the weekend and there will be a lot of traffic so plan ahead.

The City has contracted with the Metropolitan Transit System to provide special free bus service on Monday, July 4, for Cays residents. It will operate from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. in 30-minute intervals from the northeast corner of Coronado Cays and Grande Caribe to the southeast corner of Avenue de las Arenas and Silver Strand Boulevard. Stops will be made upon request at Silver Strand Military.

It will be quite a busy weekend with a number of events being held all weekend. A rough water swim, the Crown City Classic 12K/5K run and an unofficial bike-riding event around Coronado will be held on Saturday, July 2. There will be a concert at Spreckels Park on Sunday, July 3, at 6 p.m. Then, on Monday, July 4, the main events include the 73rd annual Fourth of July Parade down Orange Avenue; three concerts – one at Spreckels Park and two at the Golf Course; Adrian Empire demonstration and San Diego Star Wars Society photo opportunity; a Navy parachute demonstration; and the fireworks display at 9 p.m. 

If you are planning to watch the fireworks from the Golf Course, please be aware that there will be a firework safety zone near Stingray Point that must be kept clear for the fireworks display. The Golf Course will be closed to golfing on the Fourth of July so people can set up their viewing spots any time. Spectators may use any available, unfenced spot on or near the Golf Course for most of the day, however, starting at 6 p.m. on the Fourth, anyone inside the 700-foot firework safety zone emanating from the fenced fireworks launch area will be required to move. This also applies to boats. The fireworks display will occur at 9 p.m. over Glorietta Bay. Another fireworks display will occur near the Coronado Ferry Landing, part of the Big Bay Boom, at the same time. The most direct access to the concerts, food trucks and fireworks display viewing spots is by entering the Golf Course from Glorietta Boulevard between Vista Place and Monterey Avenue (on the Tennis Center side) of Bay Circle. Most of the activities will be on and around the 16th fairway.
