A free, world-class fireworks display in downtown San Jose

On July 4th, 2014, the Rotary Club of San Jose treated the community to a world-class fireworks display in Silicon Valley’s city center.  We are thrilled to share that over 80,000 people enjoyed a free fireworks show.  They rode VTA, they ate at downtown restaurants, and they joined families and friends to celebrate our nation’s independence.

This event was made possible by generous contributions from community sponsors, including

Discovery Meadow was the best seat in the house.

With help from our sponsors, the Rotary Club of San Jose brought the downtown fireworks back after a 6-year hiatus.

Glowing feedback

The San Jose Mercury News editorial board published this wonderful article, which honors Rotary’s local and international commitment to service above self.

Many people, many smiles.

People could see the fireworks for miles – from Discovery Meadow to downtown rooftops to surrounding neighborhoods – and beyond!

Who was behind this?

The Rotary Club of San Jose is proud to have the support of our community sponsors, including and especially the County of Santa Clara and City of San Jose.
