This is the perfect way to get out of the sun and celebrate your patriotism in the cool air of the Fine Arts Building. This program will be full of many different types of patriotic performances and the American Patriots will be recognized as well.

What a great way to end a day of celebrating our Independence. No Fourth of July would be complete without fireworks! This is your chance to spread a blanket on the grass, enjoy the cool breeze, and enjoy the brilliant colors of the fireworks set against the night sky. In order to safely accommodate a larger, and even more spectacular show, the fireworks will be lauched from the same area as last year, near the water shop. Optimal viewing is still from the Spilsbury Sports Complex.
