Get Ready to Celebrate the 127th Year of the City of Oceanside’s July 3rd Fireworks Show!


Wow, 127 years! This tradition goes all the way back to July 3, 1888 when people used to head out on horse and buggy to catch the fireworks. And now, we are ready to celebrate another fantastic fireworks show in Oceanside CA.
