Chula Vista will sponsor a Fourth of July fireworks display after a two-year hiatus caused by the pandemic. 

The highly anticipated display will begin at approximately 9 p.m. at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center (CVEATC) located at 2800 Olympic Parkway. The event will be provided by the city, CVEATC, and Local Media San Diego radio partners. 

According to a city statement, simultaneous music will accompany the fireworks on the radio station 100.7 BIG FM. 

The display will be launched from the athlete training grounds. According to city officials, “excellent viewing” of the fireworks is available at the CVEATC and nearby Mountain Hawk Park. 

A maximum number of 5,000 attendees and 600 vehicles will be accommodated at the CVEATC. City officials warn that alcohol, pop-up tents, grills, and umbrellas are not allowed on the premises, and all animals and drones are strictly prohibited at the Training Center. Parking is free and gates will open at 7 p.m. 

Several food trucks will be on-site, but attendees may bring blankets, portable chairs, and snacks.

Residents can also find free parking at the nearby New Hope Community Church at  2720 Olympic Parkway for approximately 300 vehicles. Attendees will face previously mentioned restrictions at this parking site. 

More parking opportunities can be found at Mountain Hawk Park, 1475 Lake Crest Drive, beginning at  7:30 a.m. It can accommodate 3,000 people. According to city officials, street parking is available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
