CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Every year the Cleveland Orchestra puts on one of the greatest free concerts in downtown Cleveland before the Fourth of July.

This year it's a little earlier than years past when they take the stage Friday night, June 30. The concert will continue to take advantage of the great green space on Mall B, instead of it's usual home of Public Square. They are adding lots of food trucks again this year as many people show up hours before the 9:00 PM performance to stake their claim with folding chairs and blankets. When you look at the orchestra's play list there's nod to Harry Potter turning 20 this week.
