The Redondo Beach Lobster Festival is back. But this year there won't be lobster marriages on the white sandy beach. Nor will grown men dressed as lobsters be seen parasailing behind speedboats skipping across the ocean. Nor will you see a team called the Caped Crustaceans parachuting into the small lagoon where the festival is held. No.

With an eye toward reviving business on its newly built pier, the Redondo Beach City Council approved $19,200 to host a Fourth of July celebration this year, which will include a fireworks show and live music, officials said. Independence Day festivities were called off by the city indefinitely in the 1970s. "There were problems with people throwing sparklers and a lot of drunks," said Jim Hall, executive director of the Redondo Beach Pier Association.

Resilient Redondo Beach, which has built seven piers off its shore only to have them crash to the sea during storms, is going to celebrate its 100th birthday this year--if it's the last thing it does. Cities don't turn 100 every day, so Redondo Beach started planning well in advance for its gala 1992 centennial celebration.

The city of Redondo Beach reclaimed a vital piece of its civic identity Saturday afternoon with the official reopening of its Municipal Pier--fueling healthy bouts of nostalgia and hopes for a rebirth of beleaguered waterfront businesses. Mayor Brad Parton wielded the oversized scissors that cut a ribbon to let the public onto the reconstructed pier for the first time. Its predecessor was largely destroyed in 1988 by a series of storms and a fire.
