The University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications will host the annual celebration at Flavet Field.
“It’s our gift back to the community for Independence Day,” Sue Wagner, the college’s director of community relations, said.
The event begins at 7 p.m. when members of the Bears and Lions band take the stage dressed as wild, fluffy animals.
“I’ve never seen a squirrel play the drums,” Wagner said. “I think that’s pretty amazing.”
