Event parking and street closures will be provided for Santa Maria’s “Red, White, and Boom!” fireworks show and street festival. The event will be held on Tuesday, July 4th at 6:00 p.m. at Panther Drive, located across from Sierra Vista Park, 809 Panther Drive.

The best viewing will be available parking only on Panther Drive, directly at the event. Parking will open at 5:30 p.m. The cost for parking is $5 per vehicle. Friends and families are encouraged to carpool. Bring lawn chairs and blankets. Please remember that no personal fireworks will be allowed. Law enforcement will patrol the area.

General parking will enter from the East Main Street entrance to Panther Drive. Staff and volunteers will direct drivers to park diagonally along Panther Drive and back-in their vehicles to the curb.

Parking for persons with disabilities – and overflow parking – will be accessible from the Donovan Road/Suey Road Crossing entrance to Panther Drive.

Please be courteous to the surrounding neighborhoods and only park in the event parking area. Street closures with barricades will be in the surrounding neighborhood at Centennial Street and at Domingues Street. Law enforcement will patrol the streets.

The event will feature a free outdoor concert onstage at 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. with local band, Nothing But Trouble!  Picnicking is permitted, but no barbecuing, tailgating, glass containers, or tent canopies will be allowed.
