Residents of the foothills looking for fireworks displays on the Fourth of July have two local options: Americafest 2010 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and the Crescenta Valley fireworks staged at the La Crescenta Elementary School playground. Although there will be no fireworks in La Cañada Flintridge, the Music in the Park concert will be staged from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday in Memorial Park.
The 84th annual Fourth of July celebration at the Rose Bowl begins at 2 p.m. Sunday with the Family Fun Festival and Food Court set up in Area H. At 7 p.m. there will be a performance of Drum Corps International, including a military tribute.
Two La Cañada residents, Tim Elftman and Sean Knuth, will be performing as members of the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps. Elftman, a 2008 graduate of La Cañada High, is now a student at Ohio State University, where he's a member of its marching band. Knuth has instructed the LCHS Band battery section.
