The day will begin with the Boy Scout Troop No. 752 pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. at the former Westlake Village hospital site at 4415 Lakeview Canyon Road. Individual tickets are $5 and a family package is $20.

Residents of all ages can participate in the 48th annual Westlake Village Fourth of July Parade. Starting at 9 a.m. at the hospital site, the parade will follow a four-block route to Berniece Bennett Park in First Neighborhood. The parade does not allow motorized vehicles.

Residents are also encouraged to line the parade route to cheer on participants as they stroll along. Veterans and members of the military may lead the parade.

Once the parade concludes at the park, Boy Scout Troop No. 485 will present a U.S. flag retirement ceremony.

After the service, free inflatables, old-fashioned park games, face painting, crafts and music will be offered until noon.

Free popsicles and water will be distributed. The Rotary Club of Westlake Village will sell hot dogs for $2.

In the evening the city will host the fourth annual fireworks spectacular show in collaboration with the Westlake Village Golf Course and the Westlake Village Inn.

The golf course driving range will be the central viewing location hosting Independence Day activities, entertainment and food trucks beginning at 6 p.m. Gates will open at 5 p.m.

Due to state regulations, no outside alcohol will be permitted inside the golf course driving range. Alcohol will be available for purchase at the driving range. Grills and heat sources will not be allowed.

In addition, Calvary Community Church will offer an event with food and entertainment beginning at 6 p.m.

As the fireworks will reach altitudes of 500 feet above the golf course, residents can hold a barbecue or block party in their neighborhood prior to the display.

The fireworks show will begin at approximately 9:10 p.m. and last for 18 minutes.
