Supervisor Bill Reilich Invites All to Join for the Town of Greece Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration

Supervisor Bill Reilich is thrilled to once again bring back the beloved Town of Greece Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration this year!

We are pleased to announce Jefferson Starship will be playing as our featured performers.  They will take the stage at 8:00 PM and play until our night skies darken and we welcome the best fireworks in the area “Cause Nothings Going to Stop us Now” as we light up the night sky to the delight of the thousands of visitors to our campus. Jefferson Starship is one of the most successful arena rock groups of the 1970s and 80s, earning 3 platinum and 8 gold records, as well as numerous Top 40 singles.

Our opening act will be Country Recording Artist JB Aaron. JB Aaron was born and raised in Niagara Falls, NY but is now based out of Nashville, TN. He has shared the stage with or has opened shows for various artists over the years including Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Chris Young and Kid Rock just to name a few.
