Koka Booth Amphitheatre, Regency Park

The Cary Town Band, the North Carolina Symphony, and fireworks - what could make the 4th of July more perfect. Come join Summerfest 2009 for their annual 4th of July Celebration. The big event starts around 5:45 PM when the Cary Town Band brings you an old fashion play-in-the-park afternoon concert just like your great grandparents enjoyed a hundred years ago when they celebrated the 4th of July. Patriotic music, circus music, and more, while stretched out on a blanket on the grass. Come enjoy the fun with the band, the symphony, and culminating with the best fireworks display in the Triangle area. Don't miss it.
