Residents will have the opportunity to celebrate the Fourth of July in Newcastle this year with a free concert and fireworks display at Lake Boren Park.

The sale, possession, or discharge of fireworks is illegal in Newcastle. Extra police patrols will take place to ensure everyone enjoys a safe celebration.

For those wanting to purchase and discharge their own fireworks, they are legal in Maple Valley and unincorporated King County.

The outdoor concert and fireworks will be provided with financial sponsorship from Lake Boren Townhomes and U.S. Bank.

Crowds traditionally begin gathering as early as 5 p.m. for community picnicking.

Food will be available on site starting at 6 p.m. Cherry Cherry, a Neil Diamond tribute band, will perform from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fireworks will begin at the end of the concert.
