Our seats were terrific, we had a great vantage point to listen to the symphony and Don McClean...and to watch the fireworks display. Another great experience at a discount price - Thanks Goldstar events!

The music and fireworks were excelent. Don McClean proformance was great. The main concern with attending performances at this location is the very long time it take to get out of the parking lot.

Wonderful orchestral music and Don McClean was an absolute treat. Even the fireworks show was top notch. Only negative was the rowdy teens who often made enough noise laughing and yelling to block out the music.

Lovely evening under the stars and the cool breeze, great fireworks, pleasing variety of music selections, awesome display of patriotism and fireworks, excellent seats. Highly recommended for a summer evening, an annual event for the Fourth.

This was a great event. A group of us have been going to this concert for years, and it keeps getting better. We get there when the gates open, enjoy our picnic on the hillside lawn, and head for our seats on time to get settled, fill our...continued

The Pacific Symphony was great, but Don Mclean was just not as engaging or entertaining...The fireworks were spectacular...If it had been a different headliner I would probably rate it higher

This was the best 4th of July celebration that I have enjoyed in 25 years! The symphony was amazing - the selection of songs were perfect for the evening. And Don McLean was truly a showman! He was awesome! And... the fireworks display afterwards...continued

It was a very pleasant evening. There was a nice breeze, not too hot, the sky was clear--perfect for a fireworks display. Don McClean was great...maybe a little too long. Loved the symphony.

Only one complaint--the speakers in our section,...continued

The Pacific Symphony was excellent and Don McClean was wonderful! Great outdoor venue although they really need to upgrade the sound system. Be prepared for a 10-15 minute walk to the amphitheatre from the parking lot although they do have a...continued

The Pacific Symphony is outstanding. Don McLean was so, so. Loved the setting for the 4th plus the fireworks which were good but not outstanding.
