Can Someone Tell me about 4th of July in Philly?

I have just compulsively decided to head to Philadelphia for the 4th of July weekend. I know Philly pretty well, as I went to school in the burbs there, and I'm capable of, and will do, research before my departure tomorrow, but can anyone knowledgable fill me in on some special events associated with Independence Day? I assume there must be quite a few!

Thanks in advance!

Philadelphia is going to be swamped with people this weekend. They are expecting one million people to show up for the Live 8 concert on Saturday. Elton John is the headliner on the Parkway for the July 4th fireworks celebration. There are all sorts of acitivities along the river too. Check out www.gophila.com
