PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - If you're looking for ways to enjoy the 4th of July, events start today at noon at Point State Park.

There's a big line up of music acts, including "Ameican Idol" finalist Gabby Barrett. The Munhall native's performance starts at 8 p.m. The fireworks display begins at 9:35.

Thousands of Pittsburghers will head for the Point through the day to celebrate Independence Day. Safety is the number one concern for Derrick Weber with Lion Heart Event Group, who was a guest on the KDKA Radio Morning News.

"We've been in non-stop meetings with City of Pittsburgh Public Safety, police, EMS and River Rescue and the Coast Guard to ensure safety for everyone."

And Derek adds there's a kids zone with interactive crafts, balloon artists and other activities. See the full list of events here.
