The Beach on the Fourth in Oceanside

The Oceanside Police Department wishes a happy, safe and sane Fourth of July to everyone. As in years past, members of the Oceanside Police Department will be out in full force throughout the city and particularly in the Harbor and at the beach for the entire day.

There will be no fireworks in the city on July 4.

Street Closures for the day of the fourth

In order to help facilitate an enjoyable experience for everyone, the following street closures will be in effect. From 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Pacific Street will be closed from Wisconsin Avenue to the Harbor. Bicycles will be allowed on Pacific Street. Additionally the Strand will be closed to vehicular traffic during the same time frame between Wisconsin Avenue and Breakwater Way. Mission Avenue between Cleveland Street and Pacific Street will also be closed.

A general reminder to everyone who comes to the beach area and the Harbor on the Fourth of July is that City Ordinance 1.7(i) establishes a safety zone. Fines for all Oceanside City Code violations will be tripled in this area. Examples of pertinent City Codes are, but not limited to, glass beverage containers on the beach, open containers of alcohol on the beach, diving or jumping from the pier, and having a dog on the beach or the pier (with the exception of seeing eye dogs and service dogs). The safety zone is designated as the area west of the railroad tracks to the Pacific Ocean and north and south to the City limits.

Please enjoy your time in our beach areas and please be safe.
