CALIPATRIA — City Manager Rom Medina remarked earlier this week that Saturday’s fireworks would be the largest display in Calipatria’s history.

While Brawley resident Rosemarie Lopez believed that the display was “maybe a little less,” she did notice there were more services available for attendees than at any of the city’s past Independence Day celebrations, which have been held off and on since the 1950s.
