Despite the lack of fireworks, the city will still celebrate Independence Day Wednesday with a free concert featuring the United States Army Field Band with a show at the Arthur Singleton band shell at McNaughton Park. The concert begins at 7 p.m.

The Sept. 3 Labor Day concert will feature Catman and the Allniters, according to a press release. But a location has not been announced yet.
