Happy July 4th!


  1. Do you have any photos or articles about the parade over tge years. My aunt Virginia Faler was miss Firecracker for the 1954 4th of July Parade in Huntington Beach. I have a lot of family that graduated from HBHS and many that were born and raised there. Parents, aunts, uncles, cousins. Smith's, Faler's, Isley's, Whitfield' s, Haley's, Ciarelli's, Sandoval s, and more friends and family.

  2. Hi Debbie, I have a copy of a proof set for Miss Firecracker which looks like late 1950s to 1960s. If you email me at I can send that to you to check to see if it is your aunt. You might also try the July 4th board to see if they have the photos you're looking for in their archive. I have not found any other Miss Firecracker photos. If any of your relatives have old photos of Huntington Beach they would like to share, please let me know!
