Monday, July 3, 2017 by Nina Hernandez
The Austin Symphony Orchestra website says it all: “Spend this Independence Day with 100,000 of your closest friends!” Tomorrow’s H-E-B Austin Symphony July 4th Concert and Fireworks kicks off at 8:30 p.m. at Vic Mathias Shores. Under the bright lights, the symphony will play patriotic classics such as “The Star-Spangled Banner,” “Liberty Fanfare,” and “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” With all that excitement comes the traditional road closures. Riverside Drive, from Lamar Boulevard to South First Street, closes beginning at 9 a.m. Cesar Chavez Street between MoPac and Congress Avenue closes at 5 p.m. Those are all due to be open again by midnight. For more information, including trail closures, visit the symphony’s website.
