Join the Fun at the Benicia 4th of July Celebration
Everyone is invited to come enjoy the celebration of the 4th of July in Benicia on July 3rd and 4th. Head to the waterfront to enjoy the festivities and celebrate with your friends and neighbors. Since the Independence Day celebration was canceled for the past two years because of Covid, this year, all the stops are being pulled out to make it a weekend to remember. Besides an exciting parade and fireworks, some special events are in the works to make everyone in the family happy.
Event Offerings Begin on July 3
The Torchlight Parade will go down First Street, and it will begin the exciting 4th of July celebration in Benicia: floats, dancers, bands, and all sorts of entertainment. The parade will start at 6:30 p.m. on First Street on July 3 and lasts roughly two hours, so put on comfy shoes. This year, Pedrotti Ace Hardware’s centennial celebration follows the parade. It begins at 8:00 p.m. with entertainment by East Bay Mudd on the main stage at the waterfront. Around 9:40 p.m., a stunning drone performance begins by Verge Aero, which is so good that the company won a golden buzzer for their performance from Simon Cowell on “America’s Got Talent.”
July 4th Festivities
On the 4th of July, you can entertain yourself at the street festival on the waterfront beginning at 3:00 p.m. Vendors and arts and crafts as well as food offerings will be available to suit everyone’s taste. At the same time, there will also be live entertainment on the pier’s main stage, which will keep everyone entertained until 9:30 p.m. for the half-hour fireworks show. The festivities will end at 10:00 p.m.
Public Events and Staying Safe
Many people love to celebrate Independence Day and all the festivities that are offered. While it’s a great time to get together with friends and family, it also means crowds of people all converging in one place. Accident injuries caused by negligence can occur in a number of different ways, and when they do, the at-fault party can be held responsible such as in the following:
- Traffic collisions: Traffic accidents going to and coming from a public event such as a 4th of July celebration can end up causing injuries. On holiday weekends, there is an increased incidence of drunk drivers, those who are distracted, and speeders. If an at-fault driver causes your accident injuries, you can place a claim to recover compensation for your medical costs, any lost wages and for your pain and suffering.
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents: Sometimes, vendors and others at a location aren’t as cautious as they should be, and slip, trip and fall accidents can occur, causing injuries. Loose cords are the usual problem at events as well as spills and uncleared walkways. In these cases, the owner of the stand or food vendor can be held responsible.
- Contaminated food: Food vendors are inspected and must follow rigorous standards to avoid contamination and the possibility of making someone sick. Those vendors may be responsible if people become ill from eating their offerings.
- Government negligence: Since many events are sponsored and handled by the city or county government, they can be held responsible for accidents involving a lack of crowd control, security and other measures. Because a government claim’s statute of limitations for an injured person to file is only six months, getting help from an injury lawyer can ensure deadlines are met and paperwork completed correctly.
