Since the Marina Del Rey Annual Fireworks were cancelled due to budget constraints, what’s a person to do on the 4th of July for fireworks? We say ditch em and stay right here in Venice! But it is a national tradition, so if you need some boom boom in the sky, here’s the schedule:
4401 Elenda Street (Culver City High School)
The Exchange Club of Culver City and the City of Culver City invite you to attend our annual Fourth of July fireworks show at Culver City High School. Gates open at 5PM, entertainment begins at 6:30PM, and the fireworks start at 9PM.
Culver City High School is located at 4401 Elenda Street. Click here if you’d like to see a map of the vicinity. Parking is available in nearby lots for $5 per car. Enter those lots off of Braddock Dr. at Huron Ave., two blocks east of Sepulveda Blvd.
For 55 years the Exchange Club of Culver City has been dedicated to bettering the lives of our community’s children with a special focus on the prevention of child abuse. The suggested donation of $2 per person (children under 5 are free) will help us continue those efforts.
If you’re hungry you’ll be able to purchase hotdogs, soda, and Kettle Corn. You can also get tickets for the Exchange Club’s raffle, which features grand prizes of an LCD flat screen tv and $100 gift certificates good at Westfield Fox Hills Mall! There will be great live music, too.
Please note that you are not allowed to bring alcohol or fireworks of any kind onto the school grounds.
