This year’s Fourth of July celebration will take a different format with a new location and more patriotic festivities, but no fireworks show as in previous years.The change of venue and omission of fireworks is because of construction underway at Diamond Bar High School through 2023. City staff evaluated several other locations that could serve as alternative fireworks launch sites, however, there were none that met safety standards and other logistic needs such as parking and access to restroom facilities.
In its new form, the family-friendly Fourth of July event will take place Wednesday, July 3 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Sycamore Canyon Park, located at 22930 Golden Springs Road.
Festivities will include live music by Americana bluegrass band, The Darden Sisters, and a classic rock and roll band, The Hodads, as well as a slew of fun patriotic-themed activities such as children games and crafts, balloon creations, face painting, crazy hair styling, and photo opportunities with strolling historical figures.Attendees are welcome to bring picnic dinners, or purchase onsite food truck concessions. Event parking areas will be clearly marked, and free shuttle service to and from the park will be available starting at 5:30 p.m. More information.
