2020 4th of July Community Fireworks Show
The City of Rancho Cucamonga's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular has been a long-time community staple. As a special treat this year, we are excited to offer a FREE fireworks show for our community to enjoy this year from the comfort of your own home.

The launch point for the fireworks will be at Chaffey College, but there will be NO spectators allowed on campus. The location has been moved to provide better visibility of the fireworks for more residents. We do ask that you be respectful of the residents surrounding the Chaffey College campus, and avoid parking in their neighborhoods.  Watch the 2020 4th of July Community Fireworks Show from wherever you are in the City or check out Facebook Live @CityofRanchoCucamonga

For the safety and comfort of your pets, here are some helpful tips.
  • Be sure to keep pets inside your home.
  • Turn on background music or noise.
  • If your pet has a history of anxiety or reactions to loud noises, consult with your veterinarian ahead of time.
  • Make sure your pet is microchipped and is wearing their dog license. The RC Animal Center is offering microchip services by appointment.
If your pet goes missing, contact the RC Animal Center at (909) 466-7387
Rancho Cucamonga is a Finalist for the 2020 All-America City Award
On March 17, 2020 the City of Rancho Cucamonga was named a finalist for the All-America City Award. Rancho Cucamonga is among 22 other finalists throughout the United States and the only finalist from the State of California. The All-America City Award was created in 1949 by the National Civic League. Every year the award is themed, this year's theme is "Enhancing health and well-being through civic engagement." Based off of the criteria, the City of Rancho Cucamonga submitted an application surrounding three projects: building trust and Los Amigos Park, suicide awareness and prevention, and land development.  
The City received the exciting news of becoming an All-America City Finalist during the midst of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and stay-at-home orders coming into affect. During that time, the City needed to focus on our community and working through those challenges. Now that we begin our "new normal", we have the opportunity refocus on other projects. Virtual final presentations are scheduled for August 17-19, 2020. The last few months have been challenging but our #RCcommUNITY has shown resiliency and qualities that reassure, Rancho Cucamonga is an All-America City.

We are here for you at our Monthly RC Community Check-ins!  
As a response to the need of more consistent mental health support groups in Rancho Cucamonga, Healthy RC partnered with the  National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)   Pomona Valley  to provide virtual community conversations called  Community Check-ins .  We encourage people to grab a cup of tea, get comfortable at home, and log on to the  Community Check-in  safe space to share what’s on your mind.  
The first check-in was held on June 1st from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. and will continue the first Monday of every month. The purpose of this group is to share, listen, collaborate and learn from your fellow community members. NAMI Executive Director, James Curtis facilitates and guides the conversation so that people can find the right tools, resources, and strategies to practice self-care and wellness. June's conversation revolved around attendees sharing how each person finds support. Many shared that faith, meditation, calling up a friend, gardening, and cooking were some of the ways they cope with anxiety and stress. The next check-in is on  July 6th at 6:00 p.m.  and all are welcome!
