Local food trucks will be available along Second and Main Streets before and during the concert starting at 5 pm with refreshments.
“On July 4th, we want to pay tribute and salute America for all of our freedoms, and honor those who fought for our independence,” states City Clerk Cindy Murray, organizer of this year’s events. “We hope everyone comes out and enjoys the concert and fireworks with friends and family.”
At 10 pm, a spectacular firework show will be held over the Wabash River presented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) - the ‘Real Journeymen of Lafayette.’
