Fans of Piccolo Petes and Morning Glories can line up starting Saturday to buy fireworks at Alhambra's 14 fireworks stands. While fireworks sales are banned throughout most of Los Angeles County, Alhambra residents can buy "Safe and Sane" fireworks as part of an annual fundraiser for the city's nonprofits. Check out the interactive map below to find your nearest fireworks stand.
For those not interested in putting on a mini-fireworks show on their street, the city will host next Friday its annual Fourth of July celebration and fireworks show at Almansor Park. The event will start at 1 p.m. with carnival and picnic games and live entertainment, and conclude at 9 p.m with the city's fireworks show.
Alhambra City Council urged residents during Monday's City Council meeting to attend the day-long event. "We have these activities every single year, but each and every year we try to make it bigger and we try to make it better and we hope the residents appreciate it," said Vice Mayor Gary Yamauchi.
