Large Crowd Expected For Concert And Fireworks Show
Large crowds are expected to attend Independence Day celebrations in Springfield Massachusetts.
As many as 100,000 people are expected to attend the July 4th free concert and fireworks show at Riverfront Park in Springfield. Judy Matt, president of Spirit of Springfield, said the non profit organization has put on the annual event since 1991.
This year’s celebration is headlined by the Commodores, the Motown hit-makers from the ‘70s and ‘80s and features a pyrotechnics display from the famous Fireworks By Grucci.
