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:
As the fireworks faded in the night sky, the clouds opened up and soaked us all.
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.
