Westminster College will host its annual family-friendly Independence Day celebration with a free concert and fireworks at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 3, at Brittain Lake on Westminster’s campus.

The old-fashioned family-oriented celebration, now in its 33rd year, will begin at 7:30 p.m. with music by the River City Brass Band, the country’s only full-time professional brass band. The band will perform a variety of selections, with an emphasis on patriotic music. The evening will be capped by a fireworks display provided by Pyrotecnico beginning around 9:15 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public, although a free-will offering will be taken.

Because of high attendance, early arrival is suggested. Free parking is available throughout Westminster’s campus. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs for seating, as well as picnic baskets and refreshments. Food vendors will also be on site.

In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the Anderson Amphitheater.
