Time for another July Fourth Celebration. Wherever you live, there will be some sort of celebration of our freedom, whether it be a picnic in the park, a parade, entertainment, or some combination. In many communities, the civic or municipal band will perform. Be sure to support these performances; after all, the volunteer members are your neighbors.
There are so many groups playing this weekend that I can't list them all. I know that Shorewood will celebrate with Family Day at Atwater Park on the 4th, with the Shorewood Band performing at 6:30. I know that the Racine Band will be in the big parade, and later perform a concert at the park. Also next Sunday, the Racine Band begins their 2008 summer concert series at the Racine Zoo. Concerts begin at 7:30 and are always free.
Since I have such a short list, do me a favor and write a reply. Post your own schedule of the community bands you know of, and their performance schedule for Independence Day. We'll get a nice calendar of things to do for the Holiday!
