To provide visitors with plenty of food options on Independence Day, The Coronado Fourth of July has opened Spreckels Park to outside food and beverage vendors.

With so many people coming to the island, the vendors don’t take away from Coronado’s local business, but they serve to mitigate the long lines and restaurant waits, said Jennifer Stein, a Coronado Fourth of July board member who is in charge of vendors. 

These 10 vendor options will be located in Spreckels Park through the parade, up until the concerts start in the afternoon.
