July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza
The City of Dana Point, The Dana Point Harbor Association and its sponsors are proud to present a July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza. This year’s show is anticipated to be one of the largest celebrations in Orange County. You can view it from virtually anywhere in Dana Point Harbor. Two of the most popular locations are Heritage Park and Lantern Bay Park. Both parks are located on the cliffs above Dana Point Harbor. You can also view it from many of our restaurants and areas within the Harbor, including the Island area, the bridge, Baby Beach, the wharf and off Puerto Place.
Parking can sometimes be difficult during this day. The City of Dana Point will provide FREE continual shuttle service from 10am to 11:00pm. (For information contact the City at 949 248-3530) The shuttle leaves from Dana Hills High School (33333 Golden Lantern & Acapulco) and goes directly to the Harbor and then returns to the high school. Additionally, The City of Dana Point Police Services will close all entrances to the Harbor to incoming traffic at 7:30pm, the only way into the Harbor will be via the FREE shuttle service. The shuttles will help alleviate traffic tie-ups down into the Harbor and leaving the Harbor when the fireworks have finished. The shuttle drop off is at Golden Lantern and Dana Point Harbor Drive. It will only pick up at the high school and at the designated shuttle stop above. The last pick up before the fireworks show from Dana Hills High School will be at 8:45pm into the Harbor. The shuttles will then line up and wait for the fireworks to finish and then will load up and continue drop offs to the high school until 11:00pm. The last shuttle will leave the harbor at 11:00pm. Additionally, there will be a FREE HARBOR SHUTTLE servicing the Harbor area only from 10am-8pm to help move people around in the Harbor area. Those stops will be Visitor Center, Baby Beach / OC Sailing & Events Center, Island Way, West Island, East Island, Dana Point Marina Inn, Harbor Retail/Restaurant Area.
