With Fourth of July only a few days away Long Beach residents may run into complications if they want to see a patriotic fireworks show in the city.

Hilltop Park, along with the area surrounding it, will be closed to all non-residential vehicular traffic beginning at 6pm.

The Signal Hill Police Department (SHPD) said that all individuals and families interested in viewing the aerial firework displays can still enjoy the view from the top of the hill, but should consider attending other shows in the Long Beach area since space is limited at Hilltop Park.

Residential screening areas will be located at 21st Street and Junipero Avenue and on Temple Avenue at 20th Street. Residents must show proof of residency, and guests must provide a specific address to the house they are visiting.
