The Fireworks will begin with a 'Shell Salute' to Mr. Fourth of July, Joe Marino. At the conclusion of the Salute, we will stand for our National Anthem performed and arranged by Rockford's very own Jodi Beach. The remainder of the show will give you a spectacle in the sky that will keep you smiling long after the fireworks have stopped.
Tune your radios to 95.3 The Bull or 103.1 to listen to the soundtrack that will be synched to 5,000 shells blasting over Downtown. If you can't make it downtown, you can see the fireworks live on TV on WTVO 17.
