— Another La Jolla tradition is the 32nd annual 2011 Beaumont Avenue Fourth of July celebration. This year’s theme —“Happy Days on Beaumont” — commemorates the 60th anniversary of Bird Rock Elementary School.

— Start time is 10 a.m. at the corner of Camino de la Costa and Beaumont Avenue.

— Anticipate a full parking lot at La Jolla Shores, where police will set up a command post for the day. Last year the lot was full before many people were even out of bed.

On the fireworks front, Deborah Marengo, board member of the La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation, said Monday she has “$27,900 with two commitments out that I haven’t received yet but am confident I will.”

The show costs about $28,000 to $30,000 to produce, including post-event cleanup. Any amount raised over that will go towards the 2012 show, she said.

Other fireworks displays will be held on San Diego Bay, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, SeaWorld, over Glorietta Bay in Coronado, at the Mira Mesa Recreation Center, the Ocean Beach Pier, Santee Town Center and at Lake Murray.
