City of Murrieta Celebrates 30th Anniversary of Incorporation with Birthday Bash
The City of Murrieta will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its incorporation with a birthday bash on Saturday, September 4, from 2 p.m. until just after 9 p.m. The free event features family-friendly activities, a scooter demonstration, firefighter hose down, and live music. The day culminates with a bang during 20-minute fireworks show at 9 p.m. The fun takes place at Murrieta’s California Oaks Sports Park (40600 California Oaks Road).
Murrieta Mayor Scott Vinton expressed his excitement for the upcoming celebration. “While we couldn’t hold our birthday bash earlier in the summer as we usually do, we are excited to celebrate throughout the year so we can continue to reflect on how far Murrieta has come in the past 30 years,” shared Mayor Vinton.
With its incorporation on July 1, 1991, the birthday bash will take community members back to the 90s to celebrate 30 years of cityhood. The live bands begin at 4:30 p.m. with a 90s-themed entertainment lineup including the Faux Fighters, Green Today, and No Duh. After the live music, the fireworks display—set to 90s hits—will begin at approximately 9 p.m. There will also be a kid’s zone with bounce house activities and fun. Visitors can check out the non-profit, business, and food vendors at the event and attendees are encouraged to head down early and enjoy the day at the park.
“Over the past 30 years, Murrieta has grown into a vibrant and safe community, with a strong and diverse economy,” said Murrieta City Manager Kim Summers. Summers continued, “Yet, it is the spirit of the community that sets Murrieta apart. We can’t wait to celebrate with everyone on September 4.”
