July Fourth 2023 Fireworks Display

Edhat readers share their photos from the July 4th holiday in Santa Barbara.

By Stargazer Ron

The weather cooperated with the City of Santa Barbara’s Fourth of July Celebration, making it possible for thousands to enjoy a beautiful fireworks show at West Beach. One of the best in my opinion.

  1. We did not see the official fireworks show but this was the worst or best, depending on your point of view, unofficial Eastside fireworks! It absolutely terrorized my small dog on our essential round-the-block nightly walk. The show started before the city’s one and continued afterwards, focused apparently on Salinas Street, but all around the lower eastside.
    Santa Maria issued a dozen citations with more to come, thanks to a “high altitude tool” for enforcement of the city’s laws against fireworks. Santa Barbara seems to depend on neighbors ratting out neighbors, requiring exact locations before the understaffed SBPD will move. Maybe next year the Council, so supportive of the “communal” aspect of the State Street restaurant-goers on the promenade, will pay attention to the communal needs of the neighborhoods, the PTSD-suffering vets and the frantic pets not understanding why there is no peace and quiet.
