No Fireworks Show in 2022!
Official News From the City:
"On the evening of July 4, 2022, the community is invited to a free concert at Memorial Park. The concert replaces the previously scheduled Fireworks Show. The City is under new water restrictions due to the ongoing drought. Preparation for the fireworks show requires extensive watering in the days leading to the show, accounting for approximately 650,000 gallons of water. In late May, Staff made the difficult decision to cancel the Fireworks Show in light of the drought and replace it with a free community concert. The Kiwanis Club serve up BBQ items beginning at 5 p.m. Claremont favorites, The Ravelers, take the stage at 6 p.m. and perform until 8 p.m."
