If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t visited The Great Park, I’d say attending this event would be a great start. They plan on having music, food and entertainment, including some cool aerial performances.
And just in case you’re still in the mood for more fireworks, they will conclude the event with a fireworks finale at 9pm!
Here’s the details:
Cost: Parking and admission is free!
