Don't forget you can start your Independence Day celebrations early with the Milwaukee American Legion Band concert at Humboldt Park on July 2 beginning at 6:30 PM.
If you are near Shorewood, you might take in the Shorewood Concert Band at Atwater Park on July 4th beginning at 6:30 PM. If you are near Racine, the Fourth Fest Parade is in the morning and the evening celebration, featuring the Racine Concert Band, is at North Beach in the evening.
And many communities will have their own special celebrations, featuring their community music groups. I suggest taking in one or more of these wonderful celebrations. Enjoy the performances and support the musicians.
