City of Tehachapi cancels fireworks display

City of Tehachapi

Following the recommendations decreed by California Governor Gavin Newsom in regards to outdoor fireworks displays in Kern County, the City of Tehachapi has decided to cancel the scheduled fireworks display on Saturday, July 4.

This unfortunate decision took into consideration the cancellation of fireworks displays in surrounding communities in the San Joaquin Valley, Eastern Kern County and Antelope Valley, leaving Tehachapi as the only remaining municipal fireworks display within 100 miles. The anticipated thousands of additional viewers converging on our small community to watch this display created additional public health and public safety concerns for our residents.

We hope to work with our fireworks vendor and sponsors to hold this display at a later date.
