  The Allentown Band played to a large, enthusiastic crowd in Souderton on Sunday June 27th. Most of this "Independence Day" celebration is on the program for Levitt Pavilion at Steel Stacks, on July 4th.  NOTE: The July 4th concert has been "reschedule" to its normal  time, at 7:30 PM, just before Bethlehem's fireworks. Of course, if you want to be sure to get a good spot for the concert and the fireworks, you just might want to be early.
