ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Hundreds of people gathered at Wills Park on July 4 to watch the annual fireworks display. Families and friends brought food and drinks to cookout while they waited for dusk to come. Kids ran around the wooden playground and teenagers bought ice cream and glowsticks from vendors scattered all over the park.
Once the fireworks began, the whole park whooped and yelled. The booming crescendo of each firework bursting into color pushed everyone to the edge of their seats. The Fourth of July celebration ended magnificently with a finale that turned the night sky briefly into daylight.
