We had to move the fireworks extravaganza up a bit last night due to a highly unusual occurrence — rain!
I was down by Bahari with Melissa (the editor of the Spencer County Journal-Democrat) and her husband, Mark.
It was almost eerie … just the three of us down there in the water park. Oh, and Beatles music was still playing in Splashin' Safari. (Although during the fireworks finale, I did my best to "sing" portions of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.)
Melissa's quite the photographer:
All the way down at Bahari we could hear it. From up in Holiday World, cheers and shouts. Thousands of patriots making a joyful noise.
I hope our friend in Afghanistan could feel it in his heart. As well as all the other servicemen and servicewomen who so selflessly serve our blessed nation.
