On Thursday, July 4, Let's converge at the same location as the Gazebo concerts (far right of stage near stone City of Carmel stone obelisk) whenever you arrive for CarmelFest. Some folks will come in the afternoon, others for the evening. Check the City's website for the schedule. Carmel Symphony Orchestra plays just before the fireworks, but we enjoy the evening's entertainment, games, food, etc. usually from 4 p.m. or so on together. Fireworks at 9:45 p.m. Free parking all around at local businesses.
