This 4th of July, Adams County will host a new Independence Day celebration complete with live music, family-friendly activities, and a spectacular fireworks display at the Adams County Regional Park, 9755 Henderson Road, Brighton.

Stars and Stripes will continue with live music: Spinphony at 5:30 p.m. and 6 Million Dollar Band at 7:45, and a Children’s Fun Zone, including climbing wall, trampoline bungee jump, bounce houses, mural painting, human hamster balls and obstacle courses.

No external alcohol may be brought into the park for this event.

The highlight of the evening will be a massive fireworks display scheduled to start at approximately 9:45 p.m. Immediately following the pyrotechnics, visitors are invited to enjoy a screening of the film “Top Gun,” a holiday favorite.
