Rob Lumbard July 3rd Erick Hovey July 4th Storm Lake Iowa

The Star Spangled Spectacular in Storm Lake is having the blues again this year. On July 3rd, acoustic bluesman Rob Lumbard will be performing from the bandshell in Sunset Park. Rob is the final act of the day.

On July 4th Eric Hovey will open for the Freedom Rock Band, or FRB at the great lawn near the resort. All shows and events in Storm Lake are free to the public. Make sure to get there early because the size of the town doubles for 2 days so it gets crowded fast!!!!!!
