Light It Up

Where to catch Fourth of July fireworks

The North Bay is going to sparkle this week with several Independence Day festivities scheduled between July 1 and 4.

Get an early start on the fun with the Guerneville Independence Day celebration on Saturday, July 1, and “Fireworks Over Bodega Bay” on Sunday, July 2.

The next night, July 3, two events mix music and explosives. “Windsor Kaboom!” features performances by Cover Me Badd and country star McKenna Faith at Keiser Park, and Sebastopol’s annual Fireworks & Music Festival includes appearances by local favorites Soul Fuse and Frobeck at Analy High School.

On the big day, July 4, it’ll be hard to not see any fireworks, as nearly every town in the North Bay is hosting a parade or picnic leading up to the fireworks. Santa Rosa has got “Red, White & Boom” returning to the Sonoma County fairgrounds, with family activities and entertainment on hand. Kenwood and Sonoma are both hosting small town–style parades that end at their respective plazas where daylong celebrations commence. Petaluma’s Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds will host a “Fourth of July Fireworks Festival” that boasts bouncy houses and other kids’ fun as well as a grand fireworks display.

Napa Valley will also be illuminated with pyrotechnics blasting off at the Napa County Fair & Fireworks in Calistoga, St. Helena’s fireworks show at Crane Park and “Napa Lights Up the Valley” along downtown Napa’s waterway.
