It is that wonderful time of year when things get busy and crazy on Balboa Island. More renters, more visitors, and more of everything. I have been e-mailed several times this year asking about bringing fireworks to the Island. It is definitely a no-no !!! Fireworks are illegal anywhere in Newport Beach and here on Balboa Island they are downright dangerous!! We love our houses and don't want to see them go up in flames!!

However, we do have the luxury of watching the Fireworks at the Newport Dunes from North Bayfront. The fireworks start at dark and are a fabulous, dazzling display. Come early - park off the Island if possible and bicycle in - and enjoy this fun, family event!!!

Happy 4th of July!!!
