Recognized as one of the nation’s largest and longest running 4th of July fireworks shows, the Rose Bowl presents its 91th annual AmericaFest™ celebration on Tuesday, July 4th with a spectacular nighttime display of more than a ton of fireworks.
Thousands of special effects fireworks will be launched from the stadium as part of the Rose Bowl’s daylong family-friendly entertainment extravaganza featuring live motorcycle stunts by TNT Freestyle Motorcross, and a musical performance by the Liverpool Legends honoring the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ classic rock album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”
AmericaFest™, presented by Honda, is a Rose Bowl Stadium tradition celebrating its 91th year as the longest running 4th of July show in California. The Rialto-California based company Pyro Spectaculars by Souza will once again produce the Southland’s largest fireworks show at the Rose Bowl.
Pyro Spectaculars by Souza has been family operated for five generations and has provided fireworks entertainment at the Rose Bowl Stadium for more than 35 years. Known worldwide for extraordinary firework displays, Pyro Spectaculars produces shows for NFL Super Bowls, the Olympic Games and major events throughout the world.
“You really get to be part of a larger-than-life show that transforms the evening sky into a shower of explosive lights and colors,” said Darryl Dunn, Rose Bowl General Manager. “This year we have some surprises that will deliver many ‘oohs and ahs’.”
A Family Fun Zone outside the stadium will open in the afternoon and offers food vendors, entertainment, crafts, exhibits and inflatable rides for the kids.
