Many thanks to San Diego CBS/CW (News 8) for alerting The Coronado Times to these “flashback videos” that feature Coronado during special holidays and events. Look for them on Thursday for a few more weeks.

Here is the description of the above video:

Fourth of July 1980 was celebrated in many ways throughout San Diego. News 8’s John Culea and Gene Cubbison found two different patriotic displays on July 4, 1980: The annual Fourth of July parade in Coronado and an air show at Brown Field.
