Entertainment including the 116th Army Bands, DJ’s-to-Go, Permanent Tourist and Jeremy Davis’ Super-Funky King Vega will keep energy level up on Rousakis Riverfront Plaza! Contests, Interactive Games, Bull’s Eye BBQ sampling on Saturday, the Verizon Experience, Air National Guard’s ‘Rise to the Challenge Tour’, a pink fire truck (Breast Cancer Awareness) and tons of free family fun will make it a holiday party lasting all weekend.

The Blood Alliance will sponsor a blood drive from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in Morrell Park, near the Waving Girl statue.

There is never a reason to drink and drive when you have AAA Auto Club South and Budweiser coming to your rescue! Save this number and call Tow-to-Go at 1-800-222-4357 (800.AAA.HELP); you’ll be treated to a free ride home for you and your vehicle.

The holiday all leads to the region’s biggest and best fireworks spectacular lighting up the skies on July 4th around 9:15 p.m. The fireworks are set to patriotic music that will be broadcast live on 97.3 KISS FM, 98.7 The RIVER and News Radio 1290 WTKS.
