July 4 concert location PDF

The annual Stars and Stripes Concert on July 4 is an enormous draw for Greater Lafayette and the surrounding area. For years, it has bounced between two places, dodging construction in both.

After 2015’s event, my editor asked me to take a look at the two areas and figure out how they stacked up against one another. What emerged was a constructive dialogue between stakeholders that weighed the costs of the event — one location costs double what the other does — along with comfort and acoustics.
