Fourth of July Concert at Cedarbrook Park
The concert and fireworks were very well attended. Here’s a glimpse at just part of the crowd.

Night starts to fall
And then the fireworks began
The bright explosive bursts casted daylight upon the onlookers
A red glow, looking to the east
Residents returning home in the gun powder fog looked like a Stephen King movie
