Summer Activities in Monrovia

This is an overview of summer events. Details in Monrovia Today, which is due out first week of July

Fourth of July

This year Monrovia will introduce a 4th of July Home Decorating Contest and an Old Town Monrovia Window Decorating Contest, so  break out bunting, American flags, banners and balloons. To register for the competition, please visit the City’s website [though I can't figure out where on the city website]. Judging for the competition will take place on July 1 and July 2, with the winners announced and maps made available on July 3.

Sorry, no in-person fireworks, but you can watch part of the 2019 fireworks show, which will include a tribute to Monrovia’s Blue Star Families and will honor those serving the country. The video will air on Saturday, July 4, at 5 p.m. It can be viewed on the City’s website, Facebook Page and YouTube.

Street Fair

The Monrovia Street Fair & Market will return on July 3, at 5 p.m. The market will be condensed and located on Myrtle Avenue between Olive Avenue and Walnut Avenue. To avoid crowding, a limited number of visitors may occupy the marketplace at one time. Visitors may be asked wait when the market has reached capacity. In addition, there will be one entry in, at Olive Avenue, and one exit out. No kids’ play area and entertainment, but there will be hand wash and hand sanitizer stations.
