By City of Pinole
The City of Pinole will not be hosting fireworks this year.
We encourage residents to enjoy a safe and fun Fourth of July, celebrating the birth of our exceptional nation. Families and friends often gather to recognize this special day together.
For a number of years, until 2010, the City hosted a fireworks display at Bayfront Park on Fourth of July. The City had been hoping to again host fireworks on Fourth of July in 2023. After collaborating with partner agencies to assess Bayfront Park and other sites, it was determined that there is no safe and accessible site in Pinole from which to launch fireworks. Since Pinole last held fireworks, fireworks safety standards and practices have evolved and concern about wildfires has increased substantially.
For those who would like to see fireworks, below is a list of events in Pinole’s neighboring cities.
