Join us for this special 2 concert evening, with WY-FI Fireworks immediately following – all at Lamar Park!

SCHEDULE FOR JUNE 28TH (all events are free):
Trilogy: 7:00pm
The Outer Vibe: 8:30pm
WY-FI: 10:00pm

TRILOGY is one of the longest continually-running bands in Michigan, having entertained and delighted hundreds of thousands of people at weddings, private events, and festivals since 1978. They are a 4-piece band with impeccable work ethic, talent, adaptability, energy and musicianship. They attend each show sharply dressed and ready perform. From the minute they take the stage, Trilogy wins the crowd and cranks out classic to current hits.

THE OUTER VIBE is a “musical vacation” with super catchy mixes of pop, rock, and alternative. Their success is increasing quickly – the band is in the midst of a nationwide tour, a 2nd CD was released in 2015 that garnered them radio airplay in 11,000 retail stores and commercial radio station play in 5 states, and followers have caught onto them from all over the world. Their stage presence, energy, and unique musicianship make this band a must-see this year – and a perfect way to set the stage for the 2016 WYOMING FIREWORKS!

PARKING:
Last year we had nearly 10,000 people attend WY-FI,and there was still free parking available within Lamar Park. You will be able to park within Lamar Park if you arrive early. Most local businesses along Byron Center Ave and Porter St will allow parking for this year’s fireworks event as well. We will make a facebook post and put that map on our website when it becomes available. Please – be kind to our volunteers and Police staff when entering and exiting the event.

ROAD CLOSURES:
Roys Ave, and Porter St between Roys and Byron Center Ave, will both be closed for about 30 minutes before and during the fireworks (from roughly 9:40pm to 10:15pm). All roads will re-open immediately following the conclusion of fireworks. Please exercise patience when leaving the event as we will try to exit all traffic as efficiently and safely as possible.

Why is the Fireworks event on June 28th? It is always the Tuesday before the July 4th holiday, and follows a special 2 concert performance at Lamar Park.
