The K92.3 stage (corner of Robinson St. and Eola Dr.) will feature local artists from 4-7pm, and country artist Joel Crouse at 7pm.
The fireworks will start at 9:10pm, and the whole event should be finished by 10pm.

SeaWorld Orlando will be celebrating the Fourth of July with extended hours, a special selection of all-American food, and a patriotic concert and fireworks show in the evening.
Guests will be able to enjoy all the animals, shows, and attractions (including the recently opened Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin) until 11pm on July 4, 2013.
The extended closing will allow for a special concert at 9:30pm by the SeaWorld Celebration Singers, an ensemble group of singers and a nine-piece band, who will perform a variety of popular music ranging from traditional marches and patriotic tunes to classical favorites. Following the concert, a fireworks show will begin at 10pm. Both will take place at SeaWorld’s Bayside Stadium.
Also, from July 3-6, a variety of all-American food will be served along Bayside Pathway, including bacon cheeseburgers, foot-long hot dogs, BBQ pulled pork sandwiches and kid meals, too.
