4th of July Festivities

Here are some places to watch fireworks next week! I hope everyone has a happy and SAFE 4th of July. Remember to be thankful for living in America!

Grand Tradition – Fallbrook, CA

Since 2005, guests attending FBA’s annual “Grand Tradition July 4th” fundraiser have enjoyed world-class fireworks thanks to the generosity of individuals and organizations in the community.

The low ticket prices would not begin to cover the cost of the fireworks which, as guests have said, are “the best we have ever seen.” Your continued donations throughout the year will ensure that local families will enjoy fireworks for many years to come.

Thanks to the generous support from the community, the 2013 Fallbrook Beautification Alliance’s 4th of July celebration at the Grand Tradition was the biggest and best ever. Proceeds from the Fallbrook Beautification Alliance’s (FBA) annual “Grand Tradition 4th of July” celebration/fundraiser are used to beautify and maintain the projects in our community done by volunteers. These projects are not funded by the county so we must raise our own funds and do the work ourselves.
