Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation (PCVF) invites the community to celebrate the Fourth of July with an hour-long television special, 6-7 p.m. Saturday, July 4, on KEYT TV Channel 3.

PCVF encourages individuals and families to stay home, be well, and enjoy the holiday during COVID-19 by continuing their yearly tradition for the Santa Barbara community.

“We are very excited we get a chance to bring Fourth of July traditions to those who want to stay safe and carry on Independence Day traditions,” said John Blankenship, PCVF co-founder. “This is our first time doing a Fourth of July TV special, and we are happy we get to continue to carry on the holiday spirit during these times.

“As we all make small sacrifices in our daily lives to adjust to living with COVID-19, including not being able to have our Independence Day Parade, it does help shine a light on the real sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform and what they fought for.”

The Fourth of July celebration will include scenes from past parades, special guests, a concert with the West Coast Symphony and a spectacular fireworks finale. To learn more, visit pcvf.org.

Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation honors the men and women who have served in uniform at any time. PCVF does this by supporting veterans and active duty members, and related partner organizations, in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, as well as preserving military history and legacy.

The foundation works to uphold Pierre Claeyssens’s vision that those who have served are “Never Forgotten.” PCVF is funded entirely by private donations. For more information, visit www.pcvf.org or call 805-259-4394.
