Once again the City of Monroe will play host to a July 4 celebration that includes food, music, amusement rides, and of course a spectacular fireworks display.
“This is just a great opportunity for families to come out, enjoy the rides, enjoy the music and enjoy the fireworks,”
said Monroe, NC Mayor Bobby Kilgore. “We are happy to be able to host this event for not only the residents of Monroe but also those in the county looking for a great way to celebrate our country’s independence.”
The event, sponsored by Monroe Parks and Recreation and the Union County Community Arts Council will be held at Belk-Tonawanda Park. The amusement rides and concessions will open at 4:30 p.m. and live music from Continental Divide will be from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Fireworks display will begin at 9:30 p.m.
While admission to the park and concert are free, all day passes as well as individual tickets for the rides will be available for sale.
