Celebrate the Fourth This Weekend in Aurora!
Living at Southshore means you’re near all kinds of fun things to do (and eat!) the entire Fourth of July weekend! Sing along to Eagles songs with some REALLY talented tribute artists, or tickle your taste buds with cuisine from around the world. Start your weekend, tonight!
TONIGHT (June 30):
SOUNDS OF SOUTHLANDS: The Long Run
The Long Run is one of America’s top tribute acts, performing some of The Eagles’ most popular songs with amazing accuracy. In a live concert experience at Southlands, you’ll hear hits like Take it Easy, One of These Nights, Lyin’ Eyes, and Hotel California in lush vocal harmonies.
Southlands Mall Town Square, 6:00 p.m.
AURORA SUMMER CONCERT SERIES: Raising Cain
Raising Cain is one of the most versatile dance bands in Colorado with wide-ranging musicality, covering artists from Taylor Swift and Rascal Flats to Elvis and Aretha. You’ll find it hard NOT to move your feet when they take the stage at Utah Park with their high-energy antics. And, of course, the food will rock too, thanks to Legends of Aurora Sports Grill.

FOURTH OF JULY SPECTACULAR!
Nobody does it better, and they’re doing it again this year! The city of Aurora will host live music by School of Rock, delicious food and a fireworks display billed as “one of the best in Colorado” on the Great Lawn of the Municipal Center this Fourth of July.
Attendees are encouraged to enter and exit the event site using Chambers Road to avoid road construction and closed lanes on Alameda Avenue by the library. This event is REALLY popular and space is limited so arrive early for the best seats. But, if you’d rather avoid the crowds, you can pick another vantage point from this map of the best viewing spots!
Aurora Municipal Center, 15151 E. Alameda Parkway, Aurora, CO, 6:00-10:00 p.m. (fireworks at 9:30 p.m.)
PARKING AND ADMISSION: Free
Don’t Live Here Yet?
Well, let’s fix that! Spend some time touring our beautiful model homes and deciding which one is right for you. Village Homes offers two collections and some “quick move-in” homes so you won’t miss any of the summer fun at Southshore!
Have a great holiday weekend, everybody!
