Celebrate Independence Day with this free patriotic concert by the Toledo Concert Band, featuring members of the Toledo Symphony, played on the verandah of the historic Hayes Home. The band will play a variety of music, and Civil War reenactors will fire cannons in sync with Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture.” Descendants of President Hayes will read excerpts from the Hayes family diary and letters in between musical selections as part of President Hayes’ 200th birthday celebration. Bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating on the lawn. Food trucks will sell lunch and snacks on site. Parking is available on the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums’ grounds, weather-permitting. Overflow parking is available on the street and in ProMedica Memorial Hospital’s parking lots at Buildings A and B, located at 605 Third Ave. Hayes Presidential is a short walk to the east of the hospital parking lots. For updates, visit rbhayes.org. The Hayes Home and museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library will be closed.
