Stillwater is gearing up for a Fourth of July celebration with live music, Civil War era cannons and a big fireworks display.

Battery I of the 1st US Artillery will once again set up muzzle-loading cannons on Mulberry Point. They will host Q&As and have public demonstrations. The cannons will fire as 1812 Overture plays during the fireworks display.

UPDATED: Live music will happen in Lowell Park before the fireworks display. Jillian Rae is the opening act starting at 6:15 p.m. The headliner, Jorgensen-Tagg, will begin their set at 8:15 p.m.

Stillwater will have a reserved seating area for Veterans in the Downtown Pedestrian Plaza.

Fireworks generally start about 10 p.m.

Tickets for the Stillwater Public Library Foundation’s Light a Spark Fourth of July fundraiser are available. Tickets to take in the fireworks from the library’s rooftop terrace with entertainment, light apps and a cash bar are $50 for adults and $25 for kids 6 and older. Children 5 and under are free.

The city of Stillwater will spend about $59,000 (including donations) for the annual Fourth of July celebration. Music for the fireworks show will be simulcast on KLBB Radio, AM 1220.

Look for music updates in the coming weeks on Stillwater Current.
