The breeze falls cool on your skin as blankets are laid, and coolers and baskets are packed with summer fruit and local food.
Drinks drip with ice cold water as they are pulled from iced coolers while beverages pour in the beer garden. Kids and adults alike explore the rides, games, dunk tanks, and booths as laughter bounces through the surrounding community and kids dance and play. Suddenly…
The dark night sky explodes into various colors over the lake, and glimmering with hues of red, blue, and yellow, sparks fly.
Everyone turns in wonder as audible gasps from the crowd resound and rockets whir and whistle, fizzle and pop, creating a vibrant scene of brilliant light against the skyline.
One of the biggest celebrations of the year is taking place -
