AURORA’S FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION
Bring your Fourth of July celebration to downtown Aurora this year. With patriotic music, a cool breeze off the Fox River and free admission for the whole family, RiverEdge Park is the place to be this Independence Day. After all, we say that the Park is “your backyard away from home,” and we mean it.
The full Aurora American Legion Band starts off this day of United States pride. Founded over 75 years ago, this band of fun-loving patriotic players are local favorites, playing a variety of songs including American standards, heart-pounding marches, contemporary tunes and more. Then, the Fox Valley Orchestra takes the stage. With over 60 members, this talented group has been known to play everything from Top 40 hits to classic songs to your favorite movie scores, with some surprises thrown in the mix. After the orchestra’s last note rings through the warm summer air, the Aurora sky bursts with a spectacular fireworks show that’s sure to light up the eyes of adults and kids alike.
