Red, Rhythm and Boom

The City of Mason is celebrating the anniversary of our nation’s independence with the annual Red, Rhythm and Boom event. This FREE event is an opportunity to thank our residents and business owners and promote the quality of life Mason has to offer. Mason City Council invites the community to come out and celebrate the patriotic holiday on Sunday, July 3, 2022.

The City of Mason is excited to announce the 2022 Red Rhythm and Boom event will feature multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated band, Smash Mouth! Smash Mouth is an American Rock/Pop band formed in 1994 in California. Their major-label debut “Fush Yu Mang” went more than double platinum and set the table for what most consider their masterpiece, 1999’s brilliant follow-up album “Astrolounge”. Smash Mouth’s popular hits such as “All Star” and “I’m a Believer” are sure to keep the crowd rocking throughout the evening on July 3! The City of Mason is also excited to announce that 2022 Red Rhythm & Boom will kick off with an opening performance at 6:00 p.m. by the alt-pop band from Cincinnati, The ReUnion of Souls! The ReUnion of Souls is made up of the original founding members of the Blessed Union Of Souls, reuniting for the first time in over ten years. Smash Mouth will take the stage shortly after at 8:30 p.m.

The fun will begin at 4:00 p.m. with access to carnival and kid zone activities such as interactive inflatables, bounce houses, carnival games and more! Guests can also enjoy a wide variety of food truck options as well as adult beverages available throughout the evening. Stage entertainment will kick off at 6:00 p.m. and will continue throughout the night until a fireworks display presented by Rozzi Famous Fireworks at 10:00 p.m.  We hope you can join us!

The event is FREE (no admission ticket is required). All lawn seating is first come, first serve beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 3. Backstage passes are not available.
