4th of July, 2010. It will be my twelfth Independence Day celebration in America. It happened that eleven out of twelve Independence Days my family spent in Cuyahoga Falls, at Blossom Music Center, enjoying the great American music and the best fireworks in the whole Greater Cleveland and Akron area.
This natural amphitheater surrounded by beautiful rolling hills is a scene itself. Great performance by the Blossom Festival Band and great music in the open air create unbelievably cheerful atmosphere of joy and pride. Add to this pre-concert picnic on a grassy hills of Blossom , and it will make your Fourth of July celebration in Cleveland unforgettable. Pack your own basket, bring a blanket or lawn chairs, get together your friends and family and enjoy your perfect 4th of July.
If you've never been there, just don't hesitate to plan visiting Blossom this year! The Blossom Festival Band will Salute to the U.S.A. Saturday and Sunday, July 3-4, 2010.
I have many personal reasons to salute to the U.S.A. The only time when we skipped a Blossom celebration was July of 2000, when amazing doctors from the University Hospitals fought for the life of my son Stepan who was diagnosed with multiple types of brain cancer. I thank and salute to all the doctors and all staff of the UH who saved our son's life. This year we celebrate the tenth anniversary of his second birth. Happy another birthday, Stepan!
Happy birthday, America!
