Wednesday, July 3, 2019’s Chowdown

Gimme gimme! If you just can’t wait one more day for big American kabooms then you belong with other impatient patriots in Fortuna Wednesday night. As is custom, “the friendly city” will unwrap their Independence Day presents a day early with the 11th annual Fortuna Fireworks Festival in Newburg Park featuring barbecue, music, local vendors, multiple bounce houses and, yes, many fireworks. 

Details on that and other less-red, white and blue Wednesday to dos in your Lowdown listings below.
