While Walnut Creek will not be having a fireworks display of their own for this year's Independence Day extravaganza, the city is trying to bring out the spirit of the holiday with their "Fourth of July Concert in the Park". If interested in enjoying the company of your neighbors from the area, a chance to enjoy a picnic dinner on the grass, and some good music, then head on over to the Civic Park Gazebo located at 1375 Civic Dr. at North Broadway to enjoy the city's free concert.
If you're looking for some more activities, then only 3 miles away in the neighborhood of Pleasant Hill, you can take friends and family to enjoy a day's worth of festivities. Please see the calendar of events below to find out more!
