Fourth of July in Virginia Beach to offer something for everyone
June 4, 2013 by Mark
The Fourth of July is just around the corner and most communities in the country are having celebrations to honor the 237th birthday of the United States. Not surprisingly, the annual celebration in Virginia Beach will have much to offer for everyone in the family.
The festivities will take place in Mount Trashmore Park and will feature music from bands such as User Friendly and Strictly Bizzness; foods like hamburgers, hotdogs, and pitas for purchase and children’s activities like games and inflatables. Parents can also get free ID cards made for their children courtesy of the Virginia Freemasons.
There will also be a performance of ‘Stars and Stripes Explosion’ with Symphonicity, the Symphony Orchestra of Virginia Beach, and The Virginia Beach Chorale. The performance will end with a huge fireworks display designed by the Zambelli family which will be launched from a barge. It promises to be an excellent way to celebrate the birthday of the country with the entire family and to enjoy the local musical talent at an event that draws thousands of visitors to the waterfront park every year.
The Fourth of July Celebration will take place from 4:00 pm – 10:10 pm. Admission is free and parking is $5. For more information, contact the Special Events Office at 757-385-2990.
