A Gorgeous Indiana Afternoon
The breeze flutters in from Lake Michigan as blankets are laid on the grass, and coolers abound with melon, salads, and sandwiches.
Drinks are poured ice-cold and frosty as beer gardens pour from kegs. Vendors talk to people in the park and kids play on playgrounds. It’s a gorgeous day full of laughter and fun. Suddenly, as the sun sets…
The dark sky ignites over the trees and reflects off the lake, showering the night with shades of red, blue, yellow, and green.
People look up in wonder as sparks fly, whistle, fizzle and swirl, creating a glorious scene of brilliant light.. Energy is high and eyes turn upwards, absorbing the beauty.
This is the setting for one of our most savored American events –
