The City of Lompoc wants to help the community celebrate Fourth of July safely.

Through coordination with the Lompoc police and fire departments, the Lompoc Recreation
Division has created a "block party" application process.

The city wants to encourage families and neighbors to come together and celebrate Independence Day by igniting their ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks in a safe environment.

The city has also identified two community parks that can be used to sponsor a "block party",
Johns-Manville Park and Ryon Park, as well as designating a downtown city parking lot (at
Ocean Avenue and South I Street) as a location where community members can safely use their
Safe and Sane fireworks. 

Block party applications must be submitted for all locations.

Block Party Application Packets are available here or you can pick one up at the Anderson
Recreation Center located at 125 West Walnut Avenue. 

The deadline to submit block party applications is 12 p.m. on Monday, June 25. 

In addition, the city provides a Neighborhood Block Party Guide.

Questions from the public on block parties should be directed to the Lompoc Recreation Division
at 875-8100.
