As blankets are stretched out on the grass and coolers brim with melon, salads, and sandwiches, a breeze blows in from Lake Michigan.
Beer streams from kegs, drinks are served ice-cold and crisp. Children play on playgrounds while vendors converse with park visitors. It's a beautiful day filled with laughter and joy. As the sun sets, all of a sudden -
The night is bathed in shades of red, blue, yellow, and green as the dark sky erupts over the trees and reflects off the lake.
Sparks fly, whistle, fizzle, and swirl, creating a spectacular display of bright light, and people look up in awe. The energy is great, and the eyes are drawn skyward to take in the splendor.
This is the setting for one of our favorite American traditions – the Fourth of July.
