It was a jam-packed Valley Grande City Park on Monday Night with citizens of Valley Grande, Orrville and Selma came to watch the firework show in celebration of the fourth of July.

The smell of shaved ice, hot dogs, popcorn and bbq filled the park air as citizens young and old got their spots to be able to see the fireworks. It a was nice night for everyone to come out and enjoy the family fun. Glow sticks were being handed out that were red white and blue in support of the occasion while people walked around with red white and blue on their shirts or hats.

Some of the little league teams practiced before the fireworks started. The firework show went on for 20 minutes and an estimated 200 people  roared in approval as the finale lit up the night sky.
