TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — It's almost the Fourth of July, which means it's time to put on your red, white and blue and head on down to Tom Brown Park for Celebrate America.

Tallahassee's annual Independence Day celebration has it all, fun activities, live music, and spectacular fireworks.

The entertainment at the park starts long before it gets dark. It all begins on July 4 at 6:00 p.m. and runs until 10:00 p.m. There will also be live music from the local band Moove starting at 7:00 p.m and a Naturalization Ceremony for new American Citizens at 8:00 p.m.

There will also be performances by the Trousdell Dance Teams and Tallahassee Community College Dance Company.

Fireworks start at 9:45 p.m. As for food, bring a picnic or buy food from one of the many vendors.

"It's an opportunity for us to celebrate the independence of our nation and the pride that we all feel as American's, especially now with all that's going on around the world," said City Commissioner Curtis Richardson.

During the celebration, kids can enjoy inflatables, arts and crafts, water slides, and games.

Parking is limited in the park and StarMetro buses will offer free parking and shuttles from the Kroger Office Center beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Passengers can park at the Kroger complex on Capital Circle Southeast, just south of Old St. Augustine Road.
