City of Los Alamitos and Joint Forces Training Base Sign Agreements for 2018 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular and 2019 Race on the Base

 

(Los Alamitos, CA) – The City of Los Alamitos is pleased to announce the signing of the Memorandum of Agreements between the Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB) and the City of Los Alamitos for the upcoming 31st Annual 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular and the 38th Annual Los Alamitos Race on the Base on February 22nd – 23rd, 2019. The City thanks the California Military Department and JFTB for their continued partnership with the community to be able to host these long standing community events.

The cities of Los Alamitos, Cypress, Seal Beach, the Community of Rossmoor and the JFTB collaborate to host 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular to honor the men and women of the military and to celebrate our country’s birthday. More than 14,000 spectators from all over Southern California attends this patriotic event, as it has become one of the most exciting regional events for residents, their families, and friends in North Orange County.

Race on the Base has become the signature event for the City of Los Alamitos and the largest reverse triathlon event in the country. Year-round marketing has brought positive exposure throughout all of Southern California spotlighting the City of Los Alamitos and the Joint Forces Training Base as a wonderful community partner. Race on the Base includes the Honoring Our Fallen 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run, Glow in the Dark Whimsical Fun Run, Jr. Reverse Triathlon and the Reverse Triathlon. Registration will open soon at www.raceonthebase.com

Both community events would not be possible without the Joint Forces Training Base as our host, along with our sponsors, vendors, and volunteer efforts from Los Alamitos area service clubs, churches, individuals, and families who participate each year.
