Star Spangled Celebration set for July 3 at Dublin

MADISON – A community event to celebrate Independence Day is set to go on July 3 at Dublin Park.

The annual Star Spangled Celebration will open at 5 p.m. and continue to 9 p.m. when the sky will be filled with bright and intense fireworks. Madison Parks and Recreation Department is the sponsor for the patriotic event. Dublin Park, 8324 Old Madison Pike, is hosting the celebration.

The Star Spangled Celebration, which is free to attend, will include live music, food trunks, inflatables and fireworks.

Festival goers can visit Dublin Soccer Field no. 1 for performances by bands that are popular in the area. The band, Redstone Avenue, will open the music and keep the upbeat tone until 7 p.m.

“Redstone Avenue is what happens when you combine musicians born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama, classical training, rock and roll, Bluegrass, Americana, R&B, a little engineering and a whole lot of creativity,” according to Arts Huntsville.

“Redstone Avenue is renowned for its distinctive flair, masterfully blending traditional bluegrass instruments with a broad spectrum of musical styles . . . At the heart of their music lies not just a shared vocation but a deep-seated joy in the act of playing together.” (redstoneavenue.com)

Then at 7 p.m., Groove will command the stage with the band’s seasoned sounds of funk, rhythm and blues, soul, pop and dance party music. Groove, a dance band, is based in Huntsville. (Facebook/Groove)

Formed in 2004, they’ve become known as the number one party band. Their energetic repertoire is designed to keep audiences dancing, covering a versatile range of genres. (Facebook/Groove)

With both male and female lead vocalists, they perform hits from the 1960s, 1970s and modern Top-10 tracks. Whether you need some Michael Jackson, Cee Lo Green or Pharrell, Groove delivers. They’ve played at large festivals to weddings and corporate functions. (Facebook/Groove)

A variety of food trucks will set up in the lower parking lot from 5 to 8 p.m. The kids can bounce and have fun on inflatables on soccer field no. 2.

Everyone will park at Bob Jones High School. A complimentary shuttle service will start at 4:30 p.m. and continue until after fireworks.

The fireworks show will be an exciting end to a fun-filled day at Dublin Park.
