4th of July: Party With Heal the Bay

Join Donavon Frankenreiter for a beach cleanup and free concert in Santa Monic

It's almost Independence Day. So it's time to declare freedom from the tyranny of ocean pollution this 4th of July holiday with Heal the Bay. Join our summer-long Take L.A. by Storm movement to keep our local waters clean with these ocean-friendly activities:

  • Kick off Independence Day with a star-spangled tribute to “Weird Science” by marching with Heal the Bay in the Santa Monica 4th of July parade. Conjure up a costume and meet us at 8 a.m. in front of the Civic Center. RSVP with “PARADE” in the subject line.
  • Enjoy the breezy folk-rock tunes of Donavon Frankenreiter later that evening at the Santa Monica Pier’s free Twilight Concert series. The California native will headline the show, which will also include a performance by the Song and Dance Society, featuring Jeff Young and Dannielle DeAndrea. (Note: The beach cleanup with Donavon Frankenreiter has been canceled due to a scheduling conflict.)
  • Meet the 100 species of animals that live in our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium (SMPA), which is located on the beach level below the carousel. The SMPA will be open until 6 p.m. through September 3.

This summer, keep an eye out for all our Take L.A. by Storm events. Donate and take action now.
