Stay to the end for a fireworks show

Celebrate the Fourth of July a little early during Patriotic Pops at the Columbus Commons. On Saturday, June 29, Picnic with the Pops is hosting its annual recognition of the red, white and blue at the Columbus Commons.

The performance begins at 8 p.m., and features the Columbus Symphony Orchestra playing patriotic tunes. And make sure you stay through the end, because there's a fireworks show!

Tickets cost $23-$25 for adults, $8 for children 3-14 and free for children 2 and under. Purchase tickets or learn more at
