San Clemente Times
On Monday, July 4, the city of San Clemente will host an Independence Day celebration for the community. At 9 p.m., the city continues its annual tradition of a fireworks display from the Municipal Pier. The end of the Pier, opposite the entrance, will close at noon on Sunday, July 3, for preliminary preparation, and the entire pier will close on Monday, July 4 at 8 a.m. and remain closed for the day. The Fisherman’s Restaurant will be accessible to its patrons.
A flyover by the Condor Squadron, consisting of four AT-6 aircraft World War II trainers, will take place along the participating coastal cities of Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point and San Clemente. The flyover will begin in Huntington Beach and conclude in San Clemente where the pilots will fly over the coast and conduct a 360 in the air. The full flyover schedule is as follows:
- Huntington Beach 6:05-6:10 p.m.
- Newport Beach 6:10-6:15 p.m.
- Laguna Beach 6:15-6:20 p.m.
- Dana Point 6:20-6:25 p.m.
- San Clemente 6:25-6:30 p.m.
No camping the evening before the Fourth of July will be permitted. The San Clemente Municipal Code prohibits overnight camping in parks and on the beach, and being on the beach between the hours of midnight and 4 a.m. Those in violation of the ordinance can be cited, and unattended property left on the beach is not the responsibility of the city. Also, dogs are not permitted on the coastal trail on July 4.
All ocean access, including swimming, surfing and wading will be closed 1,000 feet in both directions from the Pier from 8-10 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.
