After several years in hiatus, the San Diego Lake Murray Music Fest and Fireworks Show is once again returning this year on July 4.
For those unfamiliar with the once popular Independence Day event, the festival was a linchpin for the Navajo community where residents came together to visit, enjoy the festivities, and watch a beautiful fireworks show. The event was important to bringing the community closer together.
The committee in charge of organizing the return of the festival has worked extremely hard in pre-planning and securing the permits necessary to hold the event. However, they still need help raising money to ensure its success.
While July 4 is still three months away, funds are desperately needed now! The committee needs support from the community to meet its fundraising goals of $76,000.
The music fest and fireworks show will be held at Lake Murray Community Park in San Carlos. The fireworks can be seen throughout the Navajo community, from La Mesa to Del Cerro and beyond.
If possible, please consider supporting the return of this exciting event that has meant so much to this community in the past.
With your help, we can make it a great event yet again! Residents can donate at the organization’s fundraising account at the following link: gofundme.com/lakemurrayfireworks.
Thank you for your support!
