Fourth of July Fun in the Neighborhood

July 18, 2011

Once again this year, the annual Fourth of July Block Party brought some red, white & blue fun to the heart of the Newton Booth/Poverty Ridge neighborhood.  So without further ado, let’s see the photos!

As in past years, local musicians performed their original music live…

…while others were throwin’ down some tasty food on the grill:



Kids were cycling, tots playing in wading pools, while old-time neighbors and newcomers were chatting and enjoying the evening.  And after dark, the sparklers came out…

…and of course the fireworks:

A fun time was had.  If you missed it, come on out next year!  As I said in an earlier post, what better way to celebrate America than to have some fun and get to know the people in your own community?
