JFTB celebrates Independence Day with Fireworks Spectacular

Spectacular fireworks, patriotic music and an abundance of traditional family fun will be the order of the day on July 4th when Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB) hosts the 35th Annual Fireworks Spectacular and celebrates the 246th birthday of the United States of America.

Sponsored by the Cities of Los Alamitos and Seal Beach, the free event will feature military displays, a family fun zone, food vendors, and performances by the Cal Guard’s 40th Infantry Division Band and local favorite Country Nation Band.

“On behalf of Maj. Gen. David Baldwin, Adjutant General of the California Military Department, our community partners and the Citizen Soldiers who work and train at JFTB, we look forward to welcoming our friends and neighbors to our installation to celebrate this special holiday,” said JFTB Garrison Commander Lt. Col. Manju Vig. “We are privileged to enjoy exceptional support from the communities we serve, and Independence Day is the perfect opportunity to acknowledge and thank all those who honor us throughout the year with their outreach and friendship.”

Gates will open to the public at 4 p.m. with the fireworks show scheduled for 9 p.m. Adults must show photo identification to enter the base and children must be accompanied by their parents or guardian. All drivers must have a valid driver’s license to operate a motor vehicle on JFTB.

No pedestrians, bikes, motor homes, BBQs, alcohol or fireworks are permitted. Only service dogs are allowed.
