Most of the workforce will have Friday off in celebration of the 4th of July. Begin your 3-day-weekend Thursday night at 7:30 pm with the Casper Municipal Band's 4th of July patriotic concert at Washington Park.

Grab your friends, blankets, bug spray, an umbrella (just in case) and carve out your spot on the turf and enjoy. Concerts generally last less than an hour and this weeks show will be filled with many prideful and patriotic tunes.

I wish you and your family a blessed, safe, 4th of July!
