River of Fire is an all day event in Columbia Park, leading up to 10 p.m. fireworks! If you're going to spend a number of hours enjoying the music and fun in the park before the big show, then remember these 5 things:

1. Bring a few bucks. They're asking $5 per carload of people, and you'll want snacks or refreshments from the vendors or beer garden.

2. Bring folding chairs.

3. Bring a blanket and/or a portable tent shade if you have one.

4. Bring bottled water, battery operated fans and such. It will be in the low 90's on the 4th.

5. Fireworks will be synchronized to music on Townsquare Media stations 102.7 KORD, 97 Rock, Hot 97.5, 98.3 The Key and Newstalk 870. But don't use our mobile apps to listen because there will be a delay.

Enjoy the show and HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!
