Westgate Firework Fest

Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale will be holding their annual Fireworks Fest Tuesday, July 4  with food, live entertainment, a beer garden and water features for the kids.

Cool off in the splash pad in Fountain Park while enjoying a DJ, face painting and dancing games. Also check out new free water zones with games and kid-friendly activities located near the fire trucks on Westgate Boulevard. The fire trucks will be shooting water from their fire hoses.
