The 20-minute show will feature a patriotic soundtrack to complement the more than 1,000 shells being fired.
The internal Civic Center parking lot will be closed for the launching of the fireworks, however, surrounding parking lots will be open for the general public to view the show. In addition, the Toyota Sports Complex and a portion of the Courthouse parking lot will be open for public viewing.
Tickets will be required to enter the Toyota Sports Complex viewing area. These FREE tickets are available now, and must be picked up in advance from either the Cultural Arts Center Box office at the James Armstrong Theatre (3330 Civic Center Drive) or from the Community Services Department located in the West Annex of City Hall (3031 Torrance Blvd). There are a limited number of tickets available for access to the Toyota Sports complex. All other areas will be available on a first come, first served basis.

•Drinks (except bottled water) •Sunflower and other shelled seeds

Staff will be posted at the entrance to ensure that prohibited items do not enter the facility. The City recommends that bags not be brought into the facility, and reserves the right to conduct bag checks.
Gates to the Toyota Sports Complex will open at 7 p.m., and will close 30 minutes after the show ends. In an effort to protect the synthetic turf field, no food or drinks (excluding bottled water) will be allowed into the complex, and only chairs with rounded bottoms such as beach chairs will be allowed.
In anticipation of the holiday, the City of Torrance is also reminding everyone that within the City of Torrance, it is against the law to possess, store, offer for sale, expose for sale, sell at retail, give, furnish, use, or explode any fireworks, including those fireworks defined in the California Health and Safety Code as safe and sane fireworks.
