Groveland offers expanded July 4th celebration with added day and more musical entertainment
Groveland, long the default place to be for the 4th of July fireworks, has upped the ante this year, according to the city's economic development manager, Rodney Lucas.

"If you're looking for something fun for the Family on July 4th, the City of Groveland City Council and the Groveland Community Re-development Agency have gone into overdrive to make sure that place for you is Groveland," insisted Lucas.

On May 13, the City of Groveland signed a contract with Durbin Audio Designs, an eight year Winter Garden Music Festival Organizer, to plan and manage Groveland's July 4th Celebration.

"This event has long been accepted as the July 4th event with the best fireworks display. Now, Groveland hopes to also be the home of the best music, food, family friendly, venue as well," announced Lucas.

At the helm of Durbin Audio Designs is Jim Durbin, a musician who has played internationally with the likes of The Coasters and George Cummings among others. He will be focused on bringing a blend of country, rock, pop, dance and jazz music to Groveland.

"Jim has gained much notoriety with his event planning work for the WLOQ 103.1 Smooth Jazz Concert Series and Winter Garden Music Festivals," Lucas added.

"We hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy a day of fun in the sun with your family and ours, July 3 and 4 at Lake David Park, in downtown Groveland." For more details contact: Lucas at 352-429-2141 ext. 225.
