The City of Pasadena will have a 20-minute firework show beginning at 9:15 p.m. on July 4 in celebration of Independence Day. The fireworks will be the final activity at the city’s 4th Fest celebration, a free event that will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center and Municipal Fairgrounds (7902 Fairmont).
The 4th Fest begins at 4 p.m., and throughout the day, there will be activities, competitions and entertainment for the whole family. To help beat the heat, the air-conditioned Convention Center will be transformed into a KidZone, full of inflatable bouncers and games for kids.
The event will also feature the USMC Toys for Tots BBQ cook-off, an exotic bird show, a water balloon war zone, live music by the Brian Evans Band, hayrides and a variety of food and novelty vendors. There will also be athletic competitions throughout the day, including: a tire roll, a water balloon toss, a skillet toss, an egg toss and tennis activities.
The Car and Truck Show
will return again this year and, for the first time, is open to motorcycle entries, as well as cars and trucks. Participants can register the day of the event for $20. Awards will be given in many different categories, and the first 100 people registered will receive a special edition calendar. In addition, the first 50 car show participants will get a commemorative dash plaque, the first 100 motorcycle participants will get a limited-edition, custom bandana. And by participating, vehicle owners will also have a chance to have their vehicle featured in next year's calendar for the event.
