The 2014 Above the Fireworks event was a sold out success!!  Thank you to all who joined us!  We already have folks asking to buy tickets for the 2015 event.  We are not sure of the exact date those tickets will go sale here on our website, so please keep an eye on this page for information and announcements.  In 2014 the sales started in January.

Thank you for all who participated in our Photo Contest.

Our 2014 4th of July Photo Contest Winners are definitely winners!  Our two categories: the best of the fireworks, and the best scenery capturing the themes in the park.  Congratulations to Tom Wickstrom for best of show in the Fireworks Division and to Gonzalo Acuña Martinez in the Scenery Division.  The prize, an annual pass for entry to Cabrillo National Monument. Additionally, the photos will be used on a promotional materials for the Fourth of July event in 2015.  Our heartiest congratulations and sincere thanks to both winners!

Join us for our 3rd annual celebration of America’s Birthday! What better way to celebrate our nation than at one of its national treasures. Don’t miss an opportunity to view multiple firework shows surrounded by the natural beauty of a San Diego landmark.

Holiday Lights: December

Come enjoy San Diego under the stars while soaking in the beautiful holiday lights of San Diego and Coronado’s skyline.

Bike Race: Springtime

Ever thought how fun it would be to ride the hill down to the tidepools and back up again?  And how fast could you do it?  You just might get that chance to find out. We tentatively have a bike race coming up in the Spring.  

Also special events will be popping up in the next 2 years to help celebrate the National Park Service Centennial in 2016!

Keep watching this space for details.
