It’s going to be a memorable Fourth of July weekend in Stevenage, with a star-spangled summer streetfest session planned for the town centre on Saturday.
A red, white and blue extravaganza of American-themed activities and entertainment is being laid on throughout the day.
There’s live music all day from the main stage in Town Square featuring top local artists, and there will also be a pom-pom shaking performance by the Camps Hill Cheerleaders, dazzling dancing from the Warriorz Performing Arts Academy and a medley of crowd-pleasing tunes from Sing Rock.
You can find the full programme online at www.stevenagetowncentre.co.uk.
Also in store are a Buckin’ Bronco rodeo ride and American cop car outside HMV, fun and games with Twizzle and Twirl from 360 Play and face painting with Face-2-Face.
The fun continues on Sunday in Town Centre Gardens behind Bowes-Lyon House when a day out for the whole family is on offer
