Co-chaired by J.R. Sauer and Jimmy Wiseman, the committee would like to see area bands headline this year's festival.
Any bands interested in performing at River Rec should contact the River Rec Entertainment Committee at 446-0596 or P.O. Box 465, Gallipolis, Ohio 45631 for more information.
This year, Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday.
“One of things we're taking into consideration is the line-up of events,” Sauer said. “(The Fourth being on a Wednesday) is going to make it difficult.”
