Independence Day 2017
By Michael Mueller
The American Society of Barcelona celebrates the 4th of July with this Independence Day party at the Casinet d’Hostafrancs community center in Sants. There’ll be classic, all-American barbeque fare as well as Mexican food and drink.
As in year’s past, Barcelona-based American singer-songwriter Tori Sparks will open the proceedings with her powerful rendition of the American national anthem and keep the night rocking with her bandmates Xavi García from Calamento and guitarist El Rubio playing an original mix of flamenco and American folk, rock and blues.
The event is kids-friendly (and free for children 12 and under) with a kids corner and Ronald McDonald the clown himself on hand to put on a show. American Society events are open to members and non-members alike and welcoming to people of all nationalities. (Note this is an all cash event.)
