When fireworks meet monster trucks the result is an explosion of sights and sounds and a kaleidoscope of color and images. “Kaboom!” the largest and most spectacular fireworks extravaganza in Southern California, returns to Fairplex in Pomona on Thursday, July 4. The event, which in years past has been an afternoon and evening presentation, will start at 8 p.m.

An action-packed Monster Truck Show presented by WGAS Motorsports will get the adrenaline pumping with appearances by the four-wheeled behemoths Dragon Slayer, Monster Patrol, Bear Foot, Obsession and Big Dummy V.

Sean Hyland and Colin Morrison, motorcycle riders extraordinaire, will provide additional freestyle and aerials, performing breathtaking stunts in mid-air. Both riders are X-Games and World Tour competitors.

The evening will culminate with the spectacular offerings of Pyro Spectaculars, an explosion in the sky of color, lights, oohs and aahs. Skyrockets, mid-level fireworks and lower level sets are all choreographed to music, making “Kaboom!” the area’s most anticipated aerial and ground fireworks performance. This year’s musical theme is appropriately crowned, “The Spirit of America.” This is the 16th year that Fairplex has hosted a Fourth of July celebration.

The show is produced by Pyro Spectaculars, the dominant fireworks display company in the country. Pyro Spectaculars has a list of credentials that dazzle, including the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah.

So get ready to experience an exhilarating and inspiring Fourth of July at Fairplex in Pomona. Prices for the evening’s entertainment are $17.50 for reserved box seats, $10 for general seating and free for ages 2 and younger. Parking is $6 at Gate 17 on Fairplex Drive.
