The crowd was in high spirits at this year’s Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks July 1st. The kids loved the games, treats, or just playing chase in the field. The band, Pi Fight, played vibrant, gutsy versions of all the classic rock favorites. The burgers and kettlecorn were excellent as always! Mayor Christine Madrid said a few words of welcome, with the help of her adorable little son. The Star Spangled Banner gave us chills and made our hearts swell. And it was all topped off by one of the best fireworks displays and grand finales ever! People watched for miles around. Every year is great and every year tops the year before. How do they do this?
