SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
From the city of San Clemente Public Information Office
On Monday, July 4 the city of San Clemente will host an Independence Day celebration for the community, beginning at 9 p.m. at the San Clemente Pier. Due to high tides predicted at 9:30 p.m., the city recommends that all beach visitors clear their personal belongings off of the sand by 8 p.m. to prevent loss or water damage during the fireworks show.
Another safety reminder is that all ocean access, including swimming, surfing, and wading, will be closed 1,000 feet in both directions from the pier from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The purpose is to protect people from the dangers of fireworks fallout. The show risks delays or cancellation if the public does not comply with the closure.
The City of San Clemente is planning a positive and safe July 4 celebration for residents and visitors. Please join us in encouraging friends and family to choose safety first.
