Escondido's annual July 4th fireworks display in Grape Day Park has delighted young and old alike with its spectacular displays and wholesome family entertainment. It has become an intrinsic part of our shared community heritage and has been instrumental in encouraging patriotism and instilling a love of our great nation into the hearts of our children.

We hope that you enjoy the 50th Annual Independence Day Celebration and let it serve as a reminder of all whom have dedicated their lives to preserve the freedom and librery we have today!

Pack a picnic, grab a blanket and head to Grape Day Park on July 4 for a fun-filled, star-spangled celebration!
