VIDEO: Fireworks to light San Diego's night sky on July 4th

SAN DIEGO -- San Diegans will celebrate Independence Day in many ways: at the beach, by the pool, at local parks, firing up the barbecue grill, and at local bars. One thing that seems to be common among most people, though, is watching fireworks once the sun goes down.

In San Diego, residents and visitors can view fireworks shows taking place in all stretches of the county, so there is no need to travel far. The size and type of shows range from small community-organized shows to “fireworks spectaculars” over San Diego Bay.

SUNDAY: Gay For Good seeks volunteers for native garden restoration project

SAN DIEGO -- Gay for Good San Diego (G4G) is looking for volunteers to participate in its next community service project to take place Sunday, Dec. 18, at 9 am.

Volunteers will work with the San Diego River Park Foundation to help them replant the Point Loma Native Plant Garden, which houses many rare and endangered native plants.
