Independence Day (SBCC Closed)

The Fourth of July is US Independence Day, commemorating the official declaration of independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1776. US Americans typically celebrate the holiday with BBQs, parades, and a fireworks show.

In Santa Barbara, the fireworks show is held at West Beach on Cabrillo Boulevard. There are food vendors, shopping booths and a lot of people celebrating the holiday. The fireworks show starts at dusk, but be sure to arrive early to reserve a good spot to watch the show! Many people bring beach blankets and beach chairs, along with a picnic dinner to relax and wait for the show to start.
