Imagine the Day
A cool breeze tickles your skin as blankets unroll, frisbees and baseballs fly, and baskets of food overflow with juicy fruit, thick potato salad, and savory sandwiches.
Drinks are plucked by sunburnt hands from icy coolers as beer flows from kegs in the beer garden. You can feel the sun glancing off your skin as laughter echoes through the park and kids splash in the water. Shouts are heard from the baseball diamonds at Heritage Park Sport complex. Suddenly…
The night sky bursts into color over the trees, showcasing a dazzling display like you have never seen, and you can hear the booming explosions echoing in the distance.
You cannot help but stare in wonder as sparks fly, crackle, and twirl, painting a brilliant picture of light against the starry night. Energy is high and life is vibrating at a standstill as hundreds of people watch in awe.
This is the scene for one of our most adored American holidays and events –
