The Bears Celebrate Independence Day in River Bend

The Bears in River Bend

The Bears, New Bern’s favorite oldies band, will celebrate Independence Day with a free performance in River Bend!

The Bears will perform on the Fourth of July in the gazebo River Bend Town Hall (45 Shoreline Drive), from 11:30am to 2:00pm. Bring a lawn chair, dress in red, white, and blue, and plan to have a grand old time!

The Bears play songs from the Golden Age of Rock & Roll, with harmonies, laughs, trivia, and high jinks galore. A show by The Bears is a nostalgic adventure, with the band’s Way-Back Machine set to fun!
