Westminster College will host an old-fashioned Independence Day celebration with a free concert and fireworks Sunday, July 3, at 7:30 p.m. at Brittain Lake.
This 16th annual Independence Day celebration will feature the River City Brass Band playing a mix of patriotic, religious, folk, and popular Broadway and Hollywood sounds. Over 9,000 people attended last year's event.
Opening this year's celebration is the Veterans Memorial Pipers Band, bagpipers from Meadville. Returning is the Battery D 229th Field Artillery of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard, who will supply howitzer fire during the 1812 Overture, and the Eintracht Maennerchor Singing Society. The evening will conclude at dusk with a glorious display of fireworks by Pyrotecnico.
The event is free and open to the public, but early arrival is suggested as a large crowd is expected for this family-oriented evening. The audience is advised to bring blankets and lawn chairs for seating, and picnic baskets and refreshments are permitted. Food vendors will also be on site.
The concert is co-sponsored by Jameson Health Systems, Caroline Knox Memorial Trust Fund, King's Jewelry, and Westminster College.
