Nonprofits & Businesses Sought
for City's Spectacular
July 4th Celebration

Nonprofit organizations interested in raising funds for their cause and businesses wanting to sell food and display their goods are sought for the City's spectacular 4th of July celebration at the San Juan Capistrano Sports Park.

The event, which takes place from 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the San Juan Capistrano Sports Park, includes a host of mechanical rides and bounce houses for kids along with popular "Family Games" for all ages.

The celebration, which attracts between 8,000 to 10,000 people, features a cornucopia of fireworks, live entertainment, food and fun. Visitors enjoy entertainment and savor a smorgasbord of delectable summer flavors by several organizations selling traditional fare during the popular holiday event.

Applications, which are subject to approval, are available for food vendors - either nonprofits seeking to raise funds or private businesses. Vendor booths are also available for businesses to display or sell their goods.

The cost for a food booth for nonprofit organizations and businesses is $250. Nonprofits will pay $50 for an exhibit-only booth.

For more information and an application, call 949-443-6391. Information about the City's annual event is available in the online calendar at
