In need of plans for this Fourth of July? Find out what’s going on in the Treasure Coast right here.

In today’s video, I’m coming to you from  Riverside Park, where I’m excited to celebrate the Fourth of July.

In just a few days, there will be an influx of food trucks, live music, games, and awesome fireworks displays for the Fourth of July. If you’re in need of plans this Independence Day, I’ve got a few suggestions for you to try out:
