City’s fireworks show lights up Long Beach


Long Beach held its annual Fireworks Extravaganza on July 5, which attracted thousands of spectators. The event kicked off at 3 p.m. and featured numerous craft and food vendors lining the boardwalk between Long Beach and Riverside boulevards. At 7 p.m., a concert featuring The Gold Coast Orchestra, part of the city’s Summer Concert Series, took over the festivities. After the sun went down, the foggy night took over, but the fireworks lit up the summer skies.
