If you are in the mood for powerful vocals from up and comer, Nashville recording artist, Dani Vitaney, head under the big roof at Chuckie's Bay County Flea Market on Saturday, July 7th. She will be performing at 8:30 and again after the fireworks. Chuckie's is located on Columbus, 1 block East of Washington Ave.

The Screaming Casanovas will be playing after the fireworks, at Midland St. Pub, on Friday, July 6th and Saturday, July 7th. Midland St. Pub is located in the heart of the entertainment district on Bay City's Midland Street.

Right next door, on Friday, July 6th, you can catch Black Squad Entertainment when XACT XPOSURE presents their 2nd annual "RED WHITE AND YOU" after fireworks party. 3 DJ's, 3 styles of music, 1 place, 1 night at the River Rock.

In between all the festivities, I also plan to make time to visit My Secret Garden. Not only are they one of my favorite downtown Bay City stores, they will be highlighting items we made in the USA in honor of Independence Day.

Have fun and a safe holiday!
