Culver City

The 2014 Culver City Fireworks Show will be held on the grounds of West LA College.  Gates open at 4 pm. In addition to fireworks, there will be live music, food trucks, contests and more.

All proceeds from the show are returned to the community in the form of grants and scholarships to local organizations and deserving students.

For safety reasons, the Santa Monica Police Department reminds everyone that the use of fireworks often starts brush, home, and forest fires, endangering the lives of many unnecessarily.

SMPD Lt. Richard Lewis said many people, including young children, are injured or burned each year from using even “Safe and Sane” fireworks.

“The Santa Monica Police Department reminds you that all fireworks are illegal to sell, possess, or use in the City,” Lewis said. “This includes the Safe and Sane fireworks as well. Any fireworks in your possession will be confiscated. Their possession is punishable by fines, imprisonment or both.”
