Re-posted from 2013

The 4th of July has been celebrated in La Mirada for over 120 of our Nation’s 237 years of existence. It could be longer; this is just what we have learned from documents found during research.

In the late nineteenth century, ranch hands on Andrew McNally’s Windermere Ranch enjoyed the Fourth of July by eating cut watermelon and resting underneath the shade of pepper trees.

La Mirada Blog Facebook fan Sharon Collins-Shepard recalls the first fireworks stands appearing in La Mirada in the late 1950’s, “I moved to La Mirada in 1955. I'm thinking the first fireworks stands went up around ‘58 or ‘59. They use to have one on the corner of Valley View and Rosecrans where the Market Basket was (now a Pep Boys).”

We’re not sure what year the first organized celebration of fireworks occurred in La Mirada, but it appears to be the early 70’s.

We believe 1977 was the last year of the annual Independence Day fireworks shows at Regional Park, before it was cancelled due to crowd control issues and the famous rock-throwing incident that shut down the show.

In The Kiwanis Club of La Mirada history manual, historian Mark Royston writes the community fireworks show was resurrected eight years later in 1985 when member Ari Barendrecht suggested they organize their own event and hold it at La Mirada High School’s Goodman Stadium on July 4th of every year.

The reemergence of the event was a success.

Back Row: Manager Charles Gandara, Coaches: Stacey Foote, Eddie Amezcua and Rick Gonzalez Middle Row: Jaclyn Ibarra, Kailey Vasquez, Katie Jaime, Madison Foote, Julissa Detrinidad, Lauren Amezcua & Rosalyn Gonzalez First Row: Taylor Parra, Jordan Vasquez, Mia Rafael, Madison Becerra and Gaby Gandara

The La Mirada Girls Softball Association (8u Gold All-Star Team) continues its season with an extremely impressive record. The team of eight and nine year olds began the season with a second place finish at the Mirada Madness Tournament over Memorial Day Weekend.

The girls then lost in the semi-finals in the Field of Dreams tournament in La Habra but finished strong with a first place finish at the Summer Slam tournament in North Torrance.

The girls recently finished third in the LA/South Bay District tournament in Norwalk/Downey which qualifies them to compete in the state tournament in Lancaster from July 4th through the 6th. The team has an overall record of 15-5-1 and has had contributions from each and every player on the roster.

The team has had great pitching performances from Madison Foote, Kailey Vasquez & Jaclyn Ibarra who have a combined ERA of 1.90. They also have a great defense led by Katie Jaime at shortstop, Gaby Gandara at 2nd base and Julissa Detrinidad at catcher.

The girls average six runs per game and have had key hits in crucial situations from Jordan Vasquez, Lauren Amezcua, Madison Becerra, Mia Rafael, Rosalyn Gonzalez & Taylor Parra which has been monumental for the team.
