Waterfront Independence Festival Begins Saturday

By Andy Freudenburg

The 11th annual Louisville Waterfront Independence Festival is this weekend.

Spokesperson Ashley Cox says the two day festival at Waterfront Park will include lots of live music and is expected to draw some 150,000 people.

On Saturday night we have a country concert featuring John Rich performing with Cowboy Troy, and we have the 202nd Army Band of the Kentucky National Guard will has perform patriotic music, followed by fireworks, then on the Fourth of July we have a very different kind flavor of music we have Betty Levette the great soul singer opening up the evening,” she said.

Cox says both nights will be capped with a fireworks display by the same company that produces Thunder Over Louisville.
