Begun in 1996, the 3rd of July festival has grown into one of Orange County’s biggest Independence Day centered events that includes live music, inflatable activities and that famous Orange hometown festival atmosphere all leading up to the grand finale in Fred Kelly Stadium featuring the Orange Community Master Chorale followed by Greater Orange’s most spectacular fireworks choreographed to music.
