Wednesday night, Broadway in downtown Nashville will be packed with hundreds of thousands of people for the ‘Let Freedom Sing’ Fourth of July celebration.
“This is gonna be the party to be, if you’re not here, I guess you’re square,” said Sam Pulia, a Chicago resident, who traveled to Nashville for the celebration. “This is the place to be.”
The big bash is on the bucket list for many out-of-towners like friends Laura Baker and Gennesis Claro.
Baker and Claro are from Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We both brought boots and so we’re ready to boot scoot boogie tomorrow,” said Baker.
Some come for the artists who are set to perform.
“Lady Antebellum for sure, we’ve been a fan for a few years,” said Claro.
Others come for the celebration in the sky.
“We’re excited to see the fireworks here,” said Pennsylvanians Rebecca Carabello and Kyle Anthony. “We heard they’re the best, top 10.”
The honorary Fourth of July Nashvillians said as they soak in the Music City, they’re gearing up for a celebration they said won’t disappoint.
“Everything, we’re just taking it all in,” said Anthony. “The whole environment is just so welcoming and fun.”
“The biggest thing we’re excited about is being in a big city, celebrating America in one of the most American cities you can find,” said Baker and Claro.
