Henrico County Recreation and Parks is throwing a big party for the Fourth of July, and it all takes place at Meadow Farm Museum at Crump Park in Glen Allen. The department will present Red, White, and Lights on Tuesday, July 4th. The free event begins at 4:00 PM and will feature the Richmond Symphony, a laser-light show, patriotic performances, special recognitions, and family activities.
A Henrico County 4th of July Celebration has taken place annually since 1981, and this is the second year the event has been held later in the day with a finale by the Richmond Symphony and a laser-light show. The symphony, who is celebrating their 60th anniversary this year, will perform under “The Big Tent,” a state-of-the-art mobile stage that allows the orchestra to take its music out into the local communities.
Guests can bring blankets or chairs to the event. The family-friendly event will also include history exhibits, contests and games, inflatables, an obstacle course, airbrush tattoos, Jonathan “The Juggler” Austin, Miss Sheri the Clown, and Uncle Sam on Stilts, all in the Family Fun Zone from 4:00 – 8:00 PM.
Food trucks will be on site beginning at 5:45 PM. The Continentals will provide big band music and radio and TV host Bill Bevins will serve as emcee for the evening.
