Purple pinwheel blasts, red and blue splashes of color and multicolored bursts of light — the annual Fireworks Spectacular celebration is on at the Santa Maria Fairpark!

Come join friends and neighbors as they celebrate the Fourth of July in a free collage of spectacular colors.

Admission is free, with food and beverages available for purchase. No alcoholic beverages may be brought into the Fairpark.

Bring your chairs and blankets, gather early and settle in to listen to the sounds of popular local band Unfinished Business. Vendors will offer food and drinks for purchase or attendees can bring their own snacks. The Fireworks Spectacular annually draws about 5,000 spectators to watch the impressive display.

Thanks to generous underwriting by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians and the joint efforts of the Santa Maria Fairpark, City of Santa Maria and the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce, the community has a safe and fun place to enjoy a sensational display of fireworks.

Gates open at 3 p.m. July 4 at the Santa Maria Fairpark. The band begins at 5 p.m., and fireworks start at approximately 9 p.m. Admission is free and food is available for purchase. Bringing in outside alcohol is prohibited.

The Santa Maria Fairpark serves as the hub for major events and community activities on California’s Central Coast. The state-owned facility hosts the annual Santa Maria Valley Strawberry Festival, which attracts more than 60,000 people; the Fireworks Spectacular, which sees 5,000 spectators; and is home to its headlining event the Santa Barbara County Fair, which is attended by more than 140,000 people.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
