This morning I headed over to Murray City for a good old fashion Fourth of July celebration, which they call Fun Days. While my hometown had a full day of activities like this, it was really cool seeing the community come together.
On the performance stage, an improv group had the audience laughing.
There was also a musical performance with characters from Shrek.
And to cool off, a water balloon toss.
However, it didn’t cool down. Paramedic Atkinson of the Murray Fire Department offered up a firehose for kids of all ages.
I couldn’t resist trying it out myself. I’ll admit I’m an immature kid when it comes to fire apparatus. No kids were harmed!
I headed back to Salt Lake City for the concert and fireworks at Sugar House Park.
Quite a few fireworks were set up on the nearby football field.
I enjoyed a beautiful sunset reflected across the pond.
It wasn’t long until amateur fireworks began to fill the sky.
At 9pm, the real show started! The pond offered a nice foreground and reflection for the fireworks.
Well, it was such a good show that my car was showered with the remnants.
It was a great opportunity to see how other communities celebrated this special day. Happy Independence Day!
