The City of Tuscaloosa and the Tuscaloosa County Park and Recreation Authority will host a Fourth of July Celebration on the River on Sunday, July 4, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. This free, family-friendly event is open to the public and will include live music, kids’ activities, fireworks, and more.

The PARA kids’ zone, which will be located inside the Amphitheater, will open at 6 p.m. with games and activities for all ages. The Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra will perform around 7:45 p.m. Fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. after brief remarks from Mayor Walt Maddox.

“We are thrilled to bring back our City’s celebration of the birth of our nation this Fourth of July, after having a scaled-down event last year,” Mayor Maddox says. “Now that we can safely gather outdoors, the City of Tuscaloosa can celebrate this important day in a way that would make the founding fathers proud.”

Limited parking will be available in the grass lot by the Amphitheater. Attendees may also park in the free Downtown Intermodal Facility and take a shuttle or walk to the Amphitheater. Because of construction in the area, Tuscaloosa Police will be on-site directing traffic.

The Amphitheater’s clear bag policy will be in effect for this event. To receive text alerts for weather and event information the day of the event, guests can text “TUSC4TH” to 888-777. To learn more, please visit Tuscaloosa.com/COTR.
