Light Up the Sky

2009 Independence Day Festivities to Kick Off at West Beach

This is the week for the annual Fourth of July fireworks show, an S.B. tradition that should not be missed! The festivities start at dusk at West Beach; but the evening spectacle can best be viewed from TV Hill off Cliff Drive, Santa Barbara City College, or, if you’re willing to battle the traffic, on West Beach itself. Don’t miss this summer bing! bang! boom! that’ll light up the skies. Call the S.B. Downtown Organization at 962-2098 for more information.
