It was evident that summer was in full swing Monday at Diamond Bar’s annual "4th of July Blast" at Diamond Bar High School.
A calm and cheerful crowd perched on blankets, some under patriotic umbrellas, welcomed the hot summer day.
Guests ate funnel cake, popcorn and swilled down cool drinks while “Sound Bytes” rocked the stage. At one point, the lead singer brought around 20 kids on stage to wave American Flags and join in a festive conga line.
The main show was the fireworks display put on by the city, which spent around 30 minutes lighting up the sky.
