KBBY (95.1FM) to Live Broadcast Fireworks Show Soundtrack (Post Date: 6/11/19)
Camarillo, California – The City’s annual Fourth of July celebration will have an added bonus this year, with KBBY (95.1FM) live broadcasting the fireworks show soundtrack during the 9:00PM fireworks show.
The 2019 Fourth of July celebration will also see some changes this year, due to anticipated construction at Adolfo Camarillo High School (ACHS). Oxnard Union High School District will use funds from Measure A, passed by voters in the 2018 election, to install artificial turf on the ACHS football field during the summer. This construction activity will make the football field unavailable for use on July 4, 2019.
Therefore, Camarillo will host a scaled back event this year. Gates will open at 7:00 p.m. and admission is free for all attendees. All seating/viewing will be from the home bleachers of the stadium. No seating will be allowed on the football field and no activities are planned for kids on the practice field, due to storage of construction materials and equipment.
The Naval Base Ventura County Color Guard will kick off the evening with a presentation of colors, followed by DJ music. The evening will conclude with a 25-minute, multi-level fireworks display, that will begin at 9 p.m. Beverages and wrapped desserts/candy will be available for purchase onsite from the Pleasant Valley Lions Club.
Attendees may park at the Metrolink Station or behind the Technicolor building (3233 Mission Oaks Blvd.) and ride a free shuttle to/from the stadium. Shuttles will run every 15 minutes beginning at 6:45 p.m. No coolers, chairs, umbrellas, etc. will be allowed inside the stadium, as seating/viewing this year will be from the home bleachers.
Other viewing options include Pleasant Valley Fields in Village at the Park, which will be open this year for viewing the fireworks. Please note that while you are permitted to bring your own blankets and chairs to Pleasant Valley Fields, no barbecues, EZ-ups, pets, personal fireworks, or bounce houses are allowed.
No smoking or vaping, alcohol, marijuana, pets, or personal fireworks will be permitted on the ACHS campus or at Pleasant Valley Fields.
If you choose to watch the fireworks from Pleasant Valley Fields, or any other location besides ACHS, tune in to KBBY (95.1FM) at 9:00PM to hear the live broadcast of the fireworks show soundtrack during the fireworks show.
Event sponsors include the Camarillo/Somis Pleasant Valley Lions Club, the City of Camarillo, Oxnard Union High School District and Adolfo Camarillo High School.
