ALTON - Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater will host the annual “Fireworks on the Mississippi” family festival on Saturday, July 3, featuring the "U.S. Air Force Band.“ Doors open at 5 p.m. and the Air Force Band will play from 5:30 p.m. until the start of the fireworks, at approximately 9:30 p.m., said Dale Blachford, Amphitheater Commissioner.

“We will have free inflatables for the kids, shaved ice, face painting, balloon artists, lawn games, and of course food and drinks. The combination of the Air Force Band, fireworks, and festivities should make this a great, family-friendly event,” Blachford said.
