With the dreary days of March behind us it’s time to start making summer plans. And at the center of those plans should be Wawa Welcome America‘s 4th of July celebration, this year featuring R&B superstar Mary J Blige.

The 25th annual weeklong festival returns to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway beginning Thursday, June 29th with performances by the Philly POPS BIG Band (with special guests Mandy Gonzalez of Hamilton and jazz artist Tony DeSare), an honorary celebration of Boyz II Men, and spectacular fireworks over the Art Museum.

More artists appearing at the Parkway jam will be announced soon. Stay up to date with all of the free 4th of July events here. Mary J Blige is releasing her thirteenth studio LP Strength of a Woman on April 28th; watch her new single “Thick Of It” below.
