City of El Cajon 4th of July Celebration & Fireworks


Fourth of July Celebration & Fireworks At Kennedy Park!

Celebrate Independence Day with numerous games, live musical entertainment and fireworks at the City of El Cajon’s Fourth of July Celebration!  On Saturday, July 4th, the El Cajon Recreation Department will once again have a celebration event at Kennedy Park, located at 1675 East Madison Avenue in El Cajon. 

The following is a brief list of activities throughout the day:

•1:00 - 8:00 p.m. – Carnival games, an inflatable, a Kiddie Train, and skate park

•2:00 - 6:00 p.m. – Free crafts and family games

•3:00 - 9:00 p.m. – Two live bands

•9:00 p.m. – Fireworks show with synchronized music

If you don’t bring your own picnic, or if you run out of food, vendors will be selling food, starting at 12:00 noon.  General parking is limited, so plan to arrive early and carpool.  The City of El Cajon and Waste Management will treat spectators to an elaborate fireworks display beginning at 9:00 p.m.  At that time, the El Cajon Police Department will begin street closures to control traffic. The closures will take place for approximately 45 minutes, or until excessive traffic subsides.  This is designed to help disperse the large amount of vehicles that will be leaving the area.  The City thanks Waste Management for generously partnering with El Cajon to provide these spectacular fireworks.  For more information, please call Kennedy Recreation Center at (619) 441-1676.
