Fireworks Show

Cap off the day by joining us at College Park High School for a truly spectacular fireworks display.

This crowd-pleaser is an exciting treat for the whole family. Make yourself comfortable in the grass at the soccer field and be prepared for a dazzling presentation of fireworks and live music. It all takes place right here in Pleasant Hill at College Park High School, located on Viking Drive just west of Contra Costa Blvd (between Morello & Contra Costa Blvd).

This pyrotechnic dazzler is sure to please. In our opinion it is the best fireworks display in the county. Treat yourself and your whole family to this sensational salute to our country’s birthday.

Disabled parking is available in front of the high school on Viking Drive. General parking is close by at the Pleasant Hill Community Center on Civic Drive. Additional parking is available in the north lot (off Golf Club Road) at Diablo Valley College. There is no parking available in the DVC south lot, off Viking Drive.

This fireworks display continues to grow in both size and popularity. It draws a huge crowd, so be sure to arrive a bit early so you can stake out a good viewing spot. Bring along a blanket or towel to sit on, plus a sweater or jacket for the cool night air.

The fireworks begin at dusk, around 9:10 pm. Arrive early enough to enjoy the music prior to the fireworks, provided live by The Ripplers.  Admission is free. AFTER THE FIREWORKS, PLEASE BE PATIENT AS THERE ARE SEVERAL THOUSAND GUESTS LEAVING THE EVENT! 

Live Music!

Prior to the fireworks display we will all be treated to music performed live by The Ripplers. The music and the fireworks together make for a double treat. The music will begin at approximately 7:15 – 7:30 PM and will continue until the fireworks display begins. So be sure to arrive at the field early enough to get a good place to sit and enjoy the music of The Ripplers!
