Important Reminder: Support the Long Beach Fire Fighters Memorial Association 4th of July Fireworks Show
I was remiss in not pointing out earlier that the fireworks show at the Veterans Stadium is being done by the Long Beach Firefighters Memorial Association -- as they have done each year.
These guys do an incredible job putting this event together and use the proceeds to benefit a number of youth organizations in our community. Each year the costs for doing the event increase.
The cost is only $5.00 and you get to see a show inside the stadium that is not viewable outside.
The entire east side of Long Beach gets to see this show from the outside and those of you who will be at Rosie the Riveter Park, I ask that when we "pass the hat" around that day that you will give generously so that the firefighters can continue to provide this wonderful family event.
