Although the actual day is still more than a month away, Louis Armstrong’s birthday celebration started this past weekend with a concert series that will continue through the Fourth of July.

Born in August, Armstrong adopted July 4 as his birthday and his adopted hometown of Corona honors his decision with a party Friday.

The Louis Armstrong House Museum, 34-56 107th St., kicks off its “Hot Jazz/Cool Garden Summer Concert Series” with a performance by the group Emily Asher’s Garden Party.

And, because it is Louis’ birthday, a soul food luncheon, complete with his famous red beans and rice recipe, washed down with sweet tea. Naturally, cake will end the meal.
