Red White and Kaboom!

Lakeland had its big 4th of July festival, Red White and Kaboom, today. This has been an exceptionally rainy week this week and the HUGE thunderstorm that came through at 5 p.m. made it seem like the fireworks may be cancelled. Now in Maine we were always told that if you didn't like the weather, wait a minute. I have always thought that this was a great saying, but nowhere have I seen it more true then in Lakeland. It was 85 degrees and sunny until about 5 p.m. at which time it poured and stormed and by 8 p.m. it was gorgeous again and significantly cooler; just in time for the fireworks.

There was a great band, food vendors and so many people! The storm didn't scare away too many people and the fireworks display did not disappoint! It was really impressive. I hope everyone has a great
4th of July!
