4th of July

We are excited! After a decade of helping the Fireworks Committee present the 4th of July concert and fireworks, the Cultural Alliance is taking the lead in presenting the event this year. Though we still have the support of the Bon-Ton, Glatfelter Insurance, Susquehanna Real Estate, and the York Newspaper Company, we have 2 brand new sponsors. Columbia Gas of PA and BAE Sytems are the lead sponsors this year, ensuring that York's 4th of July continues. We are proud that York will continue this 30 + year old tradition while communities all around us are cancelling theirs due to finances. York is just an incredible and supportive community so if you see our sponsors, shake their hands for helping keep our 4th at the Expo Center alive.

While we will continue our wonderful traditions, symphonic music and song, we have a few surprises in store for you this year. And don't forget our surprise ending - the fireworks sounding off at the end of the 1812 Overture! Dah dah dah dah dah dah duh duh da - BOOM!

The young Wagman boys, who played blue grass so beautifully for Del McCoury during the Governor's Arts Awards, will also play. It's just going to be fabulous and we don't want anyone to miss it.

Remember - this event is free and open to the public. For more information and to download song lyrics for our sing-along, visit our web site, 4th of July section, at
