This Saturday the place to be is the Town Center Community Park next to Rio Seco School on Cuyamaca Street for the annual Santee Salutes July 4th Celebration. The fun kicks off at 3:30 pm and lasts until 9:30 pm after the fireworks. There will be games, rides, inflatables, food, and music with Primo DJ and the 80z All Stars. In addition, Simply Spa will be there giving free back and neck massages until 8:00 pm (maybe they should consider giving some after we stare at the fireworks). It’s a great time for family outing. You can get details at the City of Santee Event Calendar.
If you can’t make it down to the festivities, at least do yourself and everyone else a favor and don’t try to celebrate Independence Day with your own fireworks show. Not only are fireworks illegal in San Diego, they possibility of accidentally starting a fire in this extremely dry season is too high to take any chances. Add to that the danger of injury, and it just is not worth it – check out the report from News 8 if you don’t believe it. Besides, whatever you set off is not going to compare to what the professionals can do.
