Fourth of July is a time for celebrating America’s independence and enjoying the company of family and friends. While many celebrate by attending firework celebration shows, few know that this tradition was the dream of John Adams. After the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, John Adams hoped Americans would celebrate with a display of fireworks. The Conejo Valley is home to some of the most enjoyable 4th of July events for your enjoyment:
Janss Marketplace in Thousand Oaks
This annual event brings families and friends together for a FREE firework viewing. The festivities begin at 5pm and the Beatles tribute band, Ticket To Ride, will be performing from 6pm-9pm on the parking lot rooftop. The Fountain Courtyard will have a DJ performing all night long.
