Celebrate America is such a fun and patriotic gathering at Huntsman Springs (link). The Huntsman family is so generous to invite the public!! We had a great time last year (here and here) and were excited about the fireworks again. I was pleasantly surprised that the food vendors didn't shut down as early as last year (though the lines were really long and we somehow missed the dueling pianos?!?! I had assumed the speakers would be as loud as last year but they weren't. At least our Billman's burgers were good!) and the bouncy houses and kids' activities didn't close super early. After the wind and rainstorm, the clouds cleared and it was a perfect evening. We were also able to exit off a back access road, which saved hours waiting in traffic. And the fireworks and presentation were superb- especially Lee Greenwood.
Listening to the Beach Boys. I took this picture when it was nearly dark.
The rockets' red glare.
Happy birthday America!
