Free 4th of July Concert in Rosie the Riveter Park

Grab you chairs, blankets and food (but no alcohol) and plan on a fun evening concert and a view of the fireworks at Rosie the Riveter Park at the corner of Conant Street and Clark Avenue on July 4th beginning at 6pm.

The sounds of Motown will ring out in East Long Beach the evening of July 4th, when Fifth District Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske hosts a "Custom Made" concert, at Rosie the Riveter Park and Interpretive Center, Clark Avenue and Conant Street, from 6:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

"Custom Made" is the name of the band that will perform music from the 60's through the 80's, Motown and Top 40. The group has performed all over the world, including Las Vegas, Japan, Thailand, Korea, Disneyland, Germany, and for U.S. troops in Iraq.

Rosie the Riveter Park is three acres, adjacent to the former Douglas Aircraft Plant dedicated to the women who labored in the jobs men left behind during World War 2 and the Women Airforce Service Pilots.

You can also walk around the park and learn more about the women who did their part to help keep us free.

The park is adjacent to Veterans Memorial Stadium, where the city's annual fireworks display will be put on after sunset, so it offers a great viewing spot.

There are still tickets available for the fireworks show at the Veterans Memorial Stadium.
