2020 4th of July

Mira Mesa 4th of July Parade
and Fun Day in the Park


2020 – Mira Mesa Honors Its Heroes

The 46th annual Fourth of July Parade, Fun Day, and Fireworks Show has been postponed due to COVID-19.

Statement from MMTC President Bari Vaz: After reviewing the most recent statements by the City, County, State, and CDC, it is obvious that we will not be able to host this event on July 4th in its traditional format. Even if we were to be allowed to stage an event on July 4th, the restrictions that would be required and the cost of implementing them would prevent us from presenting the event. Instead we will work to present a smaller event at a later date, at a time when the community can come together without restrictions or concern that doing so may jeopardize their health.

The Mira Mesa Town Council is honored to once again present the annual Mira Mesa 4th of July Parade and Fun Day in the Park. This 46 year tradition allows Mira Mesa to come together in celebration of Independence Day and our rich and diverse community.

The celebration begins on July 3rd, with a Movie Night in the Park at sundown. Food vendors will be available; the film will be announced at a later date.

July 4th begins with a Pancake Breakfast at the Mira Mesa Senior Center from 7 AM to 11 AM, hosted by the Black Mountain Masonic Lodge. Fun Day in the Park opens at 11 am with food vendors and entertainment. The annual 4th of July Parade steps off at 11:30 am from the corner of Mira Mesa Blvd and Greenford Drive, traveling down Mira Mesa Blvd and turning north on Camino Ruiz to end at New Salem. Fun Day continues until 9 pm, and the Park provides a front row seat for the Fireworks Extravaganza. The annual fireworks are produced by Scripps Mesa Fireworks.
