Coronado’s signature holiday looks to be back on track after being sidelined by the pandemic in 2020.
“All we can do is plan, and hope for the best, and then do what we can to be ready for contingencies. We are full steam ahead,” said Todd Tanghe.
Tanghe is the president of “Coronado Fourth of July,” [CFOJ] an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that plans and funds the community wide celebration. Most people don’t realize that although the City of Coronado supports the event, the planning and fundraising are the sole responsibility of a non-profit group.
The CFOJ directly plans and pays for the fireworks, parade, and Navy Leap Frogs events. Additionally they coordinate with other entities for the 5K and 12K run, Roughwater swim, Concert in the Park, and other events.
