The Town of Hempstead will host its Independence Celebration tomorrow with a concert, fireworks and a veterans salute.

The town celebration will begin at 7:30 p.m. with a tribute to several military veterans who have distinguished themselves in service to their country and their community.

Grammy award-winning band Buckwheat Zydeco will headline the concert. Zydeco is a music style born from early Louisiana Creole with influences in the blues, R&B and even hip-hop. Following the performance, Bay Fireworks will brighten the night sky with fireworks.
Classic and vintage automobiles from several area car clubs will be on display. There also will be a food court on site.

Town Park Point Lookout is located at 1300 Lido Blvd. in Point Lookout. The entrance is directly across the Loop Parkway exit on Lido Boulevard.

The rain date for the concert and fireworks is Sunday. For information, call the town’s Department of Parks and Recreation at 516-292-9000 ext. 382, or visit the town’s website at
