CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Charleston announced plans Tuesday to host a free Fourth of July concert at Joseph P. Riley Stadium.

The event will begin at 8 p.m. that Sunday will feature the Charleston Symphony with special guests Charlton Singleton and Quiana Parler. A fireworks show will follow the concert.

“After a challenging year of cancellations, quarantines and strict social distancing, it’s genuinely exciting to be able to gather once again as a community,” Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg said. “And I can’t think of a better time to do it than on the Fourth of July--the day we celebrate our freedom as a country and a people.”

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and concessions will be available, according to city spokesman Jack O’Toole.

Tecklenburg said the event is “a gift to our citizens from the city of Charleston for putting up with a year of COVID.”

Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance.
