SATURDAY, JULY 5, 2008
Sponsored by the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce
The Fort Bragg Independence Day Fireworks Display will be held at dusk on Saturday, July 5, 2008. The fireworks will be launched from Pomo Bluffs Park adjacent to Cliff Way. There will be an off-limits, 600-foot safety buffer around the launch area. For your own safety, please stay out of this area! The rest of the park will be open to pedestrians only. Vehicles with a valid disabled person’s placard or license plate may park in the Pomo Bluffs Park parking area on a First-Come-First-Serve basis.
Please note that parking will be available at the Patton/Carlson property at Todd Point and College of the Redwoods until full. To help with the cost of fireworks, we’re requesting a five dollar donation for parking. Fireworks can be viewed from Pomo Bluffs Park, College of the Redwoods, Patton/Carlson property, Noyo Beach, the Noyo Bridge pedestrian walkways (no parking on Noyo Bridge or Main Street), and other public property. Please do not trespass on private property or enter the safety buffer. The Fort Bragg Police Department has a zero tolerance policy towards trespassing. The Police Department also has a zero tolerance policy towards the illegal discharge of fireworks.
Fort Bragg Police Department has a zero tolerance policy on trespassing and on personal fireworks. Any questions about parking, contact Sgt. Charles Gilchrist of the Fort Bragg Police Department at 961-2800 ext. 112.
That said, this should be a fun event, continuing the longest running fireworks on the coast. Pyro Spectaculars has a great record and have worked hard to put together an exceptional show. Fireworks can be viewed from the park, the parking lots, College of The Redwoods, Noyo Beach, the Noyo Bridge pedestrian walkways and many other public spots. Again, please stay off private property.
With the Chamber serving as the overall sponsor, financing from Fort Bragg Promotion Committee and the help and expertise of City Hall and Fort Bragg Police, the basics of planning, safety, insurance, and all that are taken care of but a lot more is needed…and you can do it. For the fireworks to happen, about 40 volunteers are needed; if you want to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the Chamber office at 961-6300.
