Just as a reminder, Independence Day events will be a bit of patriotic patience on the roads this Sunday, especially those around the parade route in Newhall and the fireworks show in Valencia.
The annual Fourth of July Parade runs north along Main Street (former San Fernando Road) from 5th Street to Lyons Avenue, turns west on Lyons and then north onto Orchard Village Road, ending at 16th Street.
Street closures in Newhall will begin at approximately 7 a.m. and be lifted after the parade’s conclusion around noon.
Main Street will be closed in both directions from Pine Street to Lyons Avenue;
Lyons Avenue will be closed in both directions from Main Street to Orchard Village Road;
Orchard Village Road will be closed in both directions from Lyons to 16th Street;
16th Street will be closed in its three-block entirety.
Around the Valencia Town Center, the City of Santa Clarita’s fireworks extravaganza will begin around 9 p.m.
From 8 to 10 p.m., McBean Parkway will be closed (as it is within the fall zone of the fireworks) from Valencia Boulevard to Magic Mountain Parkway.
Have a great Fourth of July!
