Rain Date, Tuesday, July 5, 2016, Chippewassee Park

RAY KAMALAY & HIS RED HOT PEPPERS


In the early 1930’s America enjoyed a heyday of small band jazz, the likes of which it has not seen since. In ballrooms across North America hot jazz, laced with exciting improvisation, and ballads, blue and melancholy, told stories of joy and tragedy, and provided rhythm for the feet of dancers of the two-step, the Lindy and the Swing… Ray Kamalay and his Red Hot Peppers are reminiscent of this peculiar era. With some of the finest players in the United States, they play this music with all the excitement and sentiment typical of the period. And they have wowed audiences at some of the very finest venues, including Interlochen, Edinburgh and the Philadelphia Folk Festival.

BETTER THAN EVER!


Big events are planned in Midland for July 4! Join the City of Midland Parks and Recreation Department as it produces the area’s greatest display of fireworks and entertainment. New for the 2016 year, crowds can expect an even bigger dazzling display due to an increased fireworks budget!

MAGIC BUS


It was a period of musical and creative energy that has never been equaled before or since! If you are too young to remember that magical time, you can now be trasported back there instantly with the one and only Magic Bus!

Come and take a psychedelic ride with us. Let Magic Bus recreate the atmosphere for you! Their incredible musical abilities and authentic look will transcend the modern and jet you back to the Haight-Ashbury District of San Fransisco in 1967. It was a time of true Rock and Roll as it was meant to be.

FIREWORKS!


At dusk you can anticipate the crown jewel of the evening, the annual Fourth of July fireworks. The fireworks can be viewed from Emerson Park, Currie Municipal Golf Course, and Chippewassee Park near the Tridge. In addition to the fireworks, vendors will be on hand with your favorite food and beverages to keep your family full. Bring your friends, family, and your lawn chairs and blankets to the event of the summer!

FOR YOUR SAFETY


For the safety and enjoyment of all spectators, personal fireworks like sparklers, firecrackers, and other items will be prohibited in city parks. As an additional safety measure, please consider leaving your pets at home while you enjoy the fireworks event. Police officers will patrol the parks during the fireworks spectacular.
