Cloudy skies didn’t seem to dampen the holiday for about 20,000 people who celebrated Independence Day at Mission Viejo’s July 4th Street Faire and fireworks spectacular on Olympiad Road between Marguerite Parkway and Melinda Road.
The fun-filled family event brought a steady stream of folks who enjoyed live entertainment by Blind Alley; Grand Junction; and Beyond Reason. Area youth bands – The Dreams, Bad Fur Day and Whiplash – rocked the house while residents perused 50 craft booths and nibbled on delectable treats from local non-profit groups that served up an array of tasty fare. The rides appealed to all ages – and tiny tots enjoyed playing in the “Firecracker Fun Zone.” Of course, the highlight of the event was the fireworks show that illuminated the Mission Viejo sky.
“The Mission Viejo Activities Committee was proud to be able to offer such a spectacular day,” said Cathy Allen, chair of the committee’s July 4th event.
