4th of July Party & Light Show | Rancho Palos Verdes

Fourth of July festivities include music, food and drink, and rides and games from 3 to 9 p.m. at the RPV Civic Center

For the first time, Rancho Palos Verdes will celebrate the Fourth of July with a drone light show — while also counting down to the city’s 50th birthday party in September.

Around 100 LED drones will create 10 to 12 various images celebrating Independence Day, including the U.S. flag and the Statue of Liberty, said RPV recreation program supervisor Andrew Berg.

“The drones will be flying a couple hundred feet in the air above the Civic Center site,” Berg said, “and it will be an animated show with moving images and some simulated fireworks.”

But the city is still finalizing the details with event producer Sky Elements Drone Shows, Berg said in a Tuesday, June 13, interview.

The Fourth of July Celebration, which is part of the city’s yearlong 50th birthday celebration, will take place at the Ken Dyda Civic Center, 30940 Hawthorne Blvd., from 3 to 9 p.m.

Live music, food, beer and wine, and family-friendly rides and games will highlight the festivities.

The drone light show will last about 10 to 15 minutes, Berg said.

Besides the Independence Day visuals, the drone show will also feature images celebrating the city’s milestone birthday, including its 50th anniversary logo. RPV was incorporated as a city on Sept. 7, 1973.

Paid parking will be available at the Civic Center, Berg said, but free parking and a complimentary shuttle can be found at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center, 31501 Palos Verdes Drive West.
