​Star Spangled Spectacular Fireworks Display

SAMLARC is excited to provide fireworks display for Members at the Beach Club Lagoon! The show will begin with acapella performances by the winners of this year’s Voice of SAMLARC Singing Competition!

  • Fireworks are scheduled to begin at 9:00 p.m.

  • To protect the area prior to the evening fireworks display, the Beach Club gates will be closed at 8:45 p.m. and no one will be permitted to exit or enter after that time

  • Fireworks displays are authorized by the Orange County Fire Authority. OCFA may, at any point, determine that environmental effects or participant behaviors make conditions for the display unsafe. Help protect the opportunities for a smooth show by observing the following rules:

  • Drones are not permitted on SAMLARC property and may interfere with flight path of the fireworks. If OCFA observes unauthorized drone activity, the representative has the authority to cancel the display

  • OCFA and SAMLARC establish a “hot zone” within the Beach Club property where professional vendors will install, launch, and clean up the fireworks materials. Guests are not permitted within this zone

  • At 8:45 p.m. the Beach Club Gates will close to prevent pedestrian traffic during the fireworks display. Guests will not be permitted to enter after 8:45 p.m. and guests who exit the facility will not be permitted to reenter
