Fourth of July Concert
Ready for any situation!
Even the weather couldn't stop the special Connecticut 2nd Company Governor's Foot Guard Concert on/in the Derby Parking Garage on July 3. The concert started out outside, until it began raining and then moved under cover of the top floor of the garage - and the band played on!
Despite the rain, there were about 400 people in attendance when Shelton's fantastic fireworks display kicked off. The top floor of the garage made for a spectacular and unobstructed view of the explosions, and the 2nd Company Band complimented the fireworks with a rousing rendition of "Stars & Stripes Forever". What a way to celebrate our nation's birthday in our All America City!
