LINCOLNTON, N.C. - Fireworks lit up the night skies as the July 4th celebration of America’s Birthday came to an end Wednesday night in Lincolnton. Thousands attended the pyrotechnic show from the Lincolnton High School Stadium and many parked along the streets and in parking lots around the area to view the star-spangled celebration from the sky.
Many families arrived earlier yesterday to stake out their spot to watch the annual parade on Main Street and for children to attend the Kid’s Zone activities for the two hours before the parade.
Many happy faces filled with patriotic pride, donning their red, white and blue, played games and danced in the water sprayed about by the fire department, a great place to be to stay cool in the hot summer sun. Down the street at the Republican Headquarters a group gathered for food and fun. And over at Fifth Third Bank the line-up for the parade began with floats, old cars, beauty queens, politicians and more.
Lincolnton was the place to be as everybody was relaxed, having fun and being reminded that the best part of independence is celebrating together. There’s nothing better than being with friends and family on this special day.
