An American Dream
The air swirls as blankets are laid on the grass, with an abundance of food overflowing picnic baskets. Ice and water splashes as drinks are pulled from ice-cold coolers while beer gardens pour from flowing kegs.
The sounds of booths, games, and rides resound as parks and kids play on playgrounds. The sound of the bat cracks from the baseball fields as the sun sets over Springbrook Prairie Nature Preserve. And suddenly…
The dark sky ignites over the park, lighting the already starry night with colors of red, white, and blue.
“Ohs” and “ahs” are heard from the grass as fiery glitter covers the horizon creating a brilliant atmosphere of light against the backdrop. Energy is vibrating and eyes are turned towards the sky as people watch with wide grins.
One of our most beloved American holidays and events is happening –
