Big Bang on the Bay event seeks permit to use Seal Beach park

John Morris the sponsor and producer of the July 3rd Big Bang on the Bay fireworks show has sought permission to use space in Seal Beach's First Street Park as the charity venue for the annual event.

According to the Seal Beach Sun, Morris is seeking to move the charities fundraising tables from his Boathouse Restaurant to the portions of the Seal Beach Park location:
