Pitbull to Headline Wawa Welcome America Concert!

And the Parkway will never be the same!

April 10, 2018

Great news, Philly!

Rap sensation Pitbull has been announced as the headliner for the July 4th, 2018 Wawa Welcome American concert!

You've probably heard of Welcome America before, and you may even have attended.  It's a Parkway-wide extravaganza to celebrate America's birthday, with a nationally-recognized parade, huge fireworks celebration, and an epic concert to wrap it up.  The show has attacted some big-name performers in the past, but this year will be one to remember with this recent news.

Pitbull is a grammy-winning rap superstar who, we anticipate, is going to put on an amazing performance in the heat of the evening.  The Miami native is often in the headlines for his tracks rising on the Billboard charts, but did you know he's a humanitarian as well?  He gained some acclaim in the fall of 2017, after he committed his private plane to fly cancer patients from Puerto Rico to the United States for treatment after the devastation wrought by Hurrican Maria.

Welcome America is one of the biggest city-wide events of the summer, and it seems like every year is better than the last.  With the promise that this year's fireworks show will be the biggest in over a decade, you won't want to miss the spectacle!  Head on down to the Parkway or catch the show on NBC on July 4th, but make sure you tune in!
