Come out to Fluor Field July 4th following the game for Drive Fest. Moonbounces, live music, face painting, food/drinks, etc. Stick around until 10:15pm to watch the downtown fireworks show from the comfort of a ballpark seat. Admission is free.

Any clue if the show can be seen from the park, g-man?

If it's where it was last year which is county square then you should be able to see the show easily from the 3rd base side of the ballpark or Spinx 500 Club. You will also be able to watch it from the outfield. It's less than two blocks from the ballpark to county square. Here is more information on Drive Fest: greenvilledrive.com: GVDrive News I have to work at the ballpark that day from 2pm-11pm.

Cell phone pic I took earlier today while at work showing the stage set up where the free concert will be played after the game tomorrow. I'm hearing the gates will open to the general public for Drive Fest beginning 30 minutes after the end of the game:
