Celebrate Independence Day with Pops on the Rock
July 4th at 7:30 pm
What is Pops on the Rock?
For 28 years, community residents and visitors have come together on Beloit’s beautiful riverfront at Riverside Park to enjoy the most patriotic of nights.
Our nation’s independence will once again be celebrated with a planned concert performed by the Beloit Janesville Symphony Orchestra (BJSO) in addition to the fireworks that light up the sky.
The event is free of charge and open to all thanks to BJSO’s generous donation of the concert and generous donations to the fireworks fund.
The event kicks off with patriotic orchestra music, after which Pops on the Rock brings you a splendid display of fireworks. Sparklers, Bottle Rockets, Firecrackers and more light up the evening sky in a burst of colors!
Relaxing by the river, enjoying the live music, and witnessing spectacular fireworks sets the perfect ambience to enjoy some soul food with friends and family. Luckily, various food vendors are present at the location to cater to your taste buds. You are welcome to bring your own food as well, however, alcohol is not allowed.
What Are Other Activities at Pops on the Rock?
Come early and rent a kayak, paddle boat or tandem bicycle at the park. There are also a variety of food and beverage vendors to enjoy beginning at 4:30 pm. Picnic tables are on site, but many people bring their own chairs and/or blankets.
What Kind of Music is Played?
You will hear a variety of classic patriotic songs.
Com with friends and family members (children will love the show too) to express some good ol’ American pride and experience wonderful music, great food, and of course, fireworks! Bring some lawn chairs or picnic blankets to make the most of this enjoyable evening.
