Long Beach hometown heroes
The perfect Fourth of July event involves spectacular fireworks and patriotic music. It has been a tradition all across our country for decades. This year, Long Beach residents will be able to bring their families to enjoy a special evening with the Long Beach Municipal Band performing with the dramatic backdrop of fireworks at Veterans Stadium at Clark and Conant, announced Fifth District Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske today.
Long Beach hometown heroes Dengue Fever performed at the Grand Opening of the Federal Underground this past January. Now they are returning for a series of Saturday Night headlining performances.
