Antioch Reminds Residents 4th of July Parade and Fireworks Are Cancelled


The City of Antioch reminds residents that the 4th of July parade, day-long activities and fireworks show have all been cancelled due to the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Back on April 29, the City Council agreed to cancel the 4th of July Celebration along with community events through August.

The city said Monday that Families are encouraged to enjoy the holiday weekend close to home. Antioch parks have been open for health and fitness opportunities, and on July 1, 2020, picnic areas, park restrooms, and parking lot gates will open. The County Health Orders allow picnic areas and barbecues to be enjoyed by families and people in the same living unit or household.

The Antioch Water Park is now offering family swimming hours by reservation.  To schedule your swim time for your family call the Water Park at (925)776-3070.  It will be a warm holiday weekend, but you and your children can keep cool!

Additional programs and activities will be scheduled later in the summer when new Orders are provided by Contra Costa County Health Department.  Residents are encouraged  to stay connected with the City of Antioch by following the daily announcements posted on the website  and participating in the Virtual Recreation Center at

For more information about summer recreation programs and activities including summer camps for kids, sports programs, senior services and the Antioch Water Park summer season, please call the Department at 925-776-3050.


  1. Wish you would remind residents when July 4th actually is, because fireworks have been going off for at least 3 weeks. Police should hang out between Cavallo and Hillcrest any night and get these bastards.

  2. How about individuals shooting off M80 and M1000 all over the neighborhoods? What will the city do about that? Last night, assholes were shooting off loud rockets at 2 am .. I hope those who had to go to work in the morning, managed to get some sleep.

  3. Enough with the damned fireworks. And, HOORAY. No boring parades of politicians and insurance agents waving to the people.

  4. City of Antioch:
    Oh don’t you worry… -I’m sure ‘We The People’ will find a way to Celebrate Our-Country’s Independence Day WITHOUT YOU.

    -Happy Independence Day America!

    • Don’t you just hate wannabe English teachers. I certainly get your point so that’s all that really matters to me. I for one could care less about your education. Happy Independence Day right back at you.
