Every year, the grand finale is a massive outdoor concert on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art featuring huge stars and this year is no exception. That's right, there is a massive concert adjacent to the Rocky Steps and Rocky Statue. This year's Philly Fourth of July concert features Jennifer Hudson, Meghan Trainor, and the Philly POPS and will be capped off with the spectacular fireworks on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.  The Philadelphia July 4th concert is among the largest free concerts in the country and the fireworks never disapoint!
