Zoot Island party will perform at Renziehausen Park at 7 p.m. tonight, with fireworks to follow for Independence Day.
McKeesport Mayor Michael Cherepko said this week the fireworks will be set off at around 9:30 p.m., weather permitting.
"Obviously, we'll keep an eye on the sky," he said.
McKeesport police will be out in full force to monitor traffic and crowd safety, Cherepko said.
The concert is sponsored by the McKeesport Lions Club, the Allegheny Regional Asset District, the city of McKeesport and Mayor Michael Cherepko. Admission is free but attendees should bring a blanket or chair to sit on.
Zoot Island performs a mix of summertime favorites, including Jimmy Buffett tunes, classic rock and oldies, sing-a-long hits and beach party tunes.
