Celebrate the 4th of July with the CR Municipal Band!

Join us for a 4th of July celebration Wednesday evening from 7:30-8:30!  We have a fantastic line-up of patriotic favorites in addition to our Young Artist Competition winner Gus Brown on marimba and we will close out the concert with a children’s parade around the park to The Stars and Stripes Forever!  Gather your family and friends, a lawn chair and a picnic.  Perfect for those who may not want to fight the fireworks crowd, or those who would like to enjoy some great music before heading to a fireworks show.  Hope to see you there!
