Kleman Plaza is also home of a July fourth weekend celebrationin Tallahassee, FL. This great event happens on Saturday, July 3, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m at Kleman Plaza. It’s a day to bring the kids, a blanket, sit on the lawn in the center of downtown Tallahassee and sway to the sound of the blues, enjoy smoked barbeque and listen to great local bands like King Cotton, Rick Lollar, the Swingin’ Harpoon Blues Band and TJ and The Burglar Group. What a line-up!
Water mister’s and the fountains and ice-cream from vendors seem to keep the kids cool and a few shade trees and seat are available, but bring your own chair or blanket!
