Cannons fire as the Richmond Concert Band plays Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture." This famous piece and other patriotic and popular music entertains spectators. Then the bells of the Carillon, a Georgian bell tower, chime as fireworks light the sky in an impressive display. Treats like sno-cones and popcorn are available from vendors. Most who attend the event bring a picnic. Admission is free.
