Ooh and ah at the fireworks over the Dana Point, Run for Fun on the 4th with Laguna Niguel YMCA, or watch the Old Glory Boat parade in Newport Beach. Throughout Orange County, there are endless possibilities for your 4th of July celebrations. We’re particularly partial to the traditional Tustin celebration, so we’ll start there:
