While there continues to be some uncertainty surrounding large gatherings and events in the future, the City of Upland is excited to announce the return of our Fireworks Spectacular!  

On Sunday, July 4th, spend time with your family during the day and by night, gather in your yard or drive to a better viewing site to enjoy the 15–20-minute firework show, launching from the grounds of Holliday Rock on Benson Ave.   While the City understands the desire for gathering with friends and family to celebrate the holiday, we encourage everyone to follow the State and County guidelines for COVID safety on the day-of.
