Star-Spangled Spectacular Concert and Festival

Come to Public Square after work Friday for the Star-Spangled Spectacular Concert and Festival. There's been much discussion in the print and digital community on the present and future of Public Square in the past month. This event, besides a chance to enjoy the sounds of the world-renowned Orchestra, is a rare opportunity to see thousands descend upon the Square and see the four quadrants unified into a single public open space.
