July 4th Center City walking tour in between free day and night events. Commemorative events, parade, free food, concert, fireworks.

Welcome America is a giant national celebration every year with a terrific fireworks show, musical headliners, free food and other entertainment, the nation's birthday parade, and some pomp and ceremony. All free, but with a gap in the middle of the day when events subside that we can fill with an historic walk! Probably a late lunch stop.
