The longstanding tradition of community fireworks show in Atascadero ended in 1982, with a late-game decision in 1983 to pull the plug. In 2012 and 2013, the dynamic duo of Jerry Clay and Bob Kelley brought a family-friendly festival to Atascadero Lake Park, but the event did not carry a third year.
We could not be more blessed to have received the support that we saw on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. Complaints we ran out of BBQ? Yep! But we had Dave’s Dogs and Crush Catering on hand to serve those who came after the BBQ closed at 6 p.m.
In 2018, we will have even more food!
We heard such great feedback about the event, and yes, we heard the complaints as well. We have listened to the feedback and will continue to do so as we plan our 2018 soirée. We hope you make plans to join us, either again or for the first time. Sign up above to get news.
