Mike Hiles, Special to Valley NewsThe Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians and Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District teamed up to put on a firework show that lit up the San Jacinto Valley skies – and computer screens for those that livestreamed it on July 4. Both entities are well known for their annual spectacular pyrotechnic displays but due to COVID-19 limits on public gatherings, things were done differently this year.“Having the restrictions has been challenging in trying to coordinate the show,” Michael Castello, the Soboba tribal administrator, said. “Our goal from the beginning has been to provide the tribe and community an event that everyone can enjoy but always maintain the safest environment possible.”[caption id="attachment_30714" align="aligncenter" width
