Country star Newfield to headline Red, White & Boom

By Staff | Jun 9, 2011

Country star Heidi Newfield will perform during Cape Coral's annual Independence Day celebration Red, White & Boom.

Last week, the Chamber of Commerce of Cape Coral announced that country music star Heidi Newfield will be the headlining act at the RE/MAX Realty Team – City of Cape Coral Red, White & Boom Fourth of July Celebration.

Cat Country 107.1 is proud to present Newfield live and in person on the Roger Dean Chevrolet Stage. Newfield is the former lead guitarist and singer for country supergroup Trick Pony. Her new song, “Stay Up Late,” was just released in the last month on Curb Records.

“We are thrilled to have Heidi as our headlining act this year,” said Yoselyn Hollow, broker/owner for the RE/MAX Realty Team.

Newfield’s opening band at the event will be local favorites Smack Daddy.

Red, White & Boom will be held Monday, July 4 beginning at 4 p.m. on Cape Coral Parkway, from the foot of the Cape Coral Bridge to Del Prado Blvd. The Independence Day celebration is free for all to attend, with complimentary parking.

In addition to Newfield and Smack Daddy, Red, White & Boom will play host to fireworks, a “Family Fun Zone,” more than 100 vendors of food, drinks, novelty items, jewelry, arts and crafts, along with free giveaways and drawings.

Once again, Harley Davidson Buell of Fort Myers will be presenting a very special American Tribute for our local men and women serving in the war zones.

New this year to the festivities will also be the running of the “Freedom 5K” race, which will run across the Cape Coral Bridge beginning at 6:30 p.m.
