Despite a rain-filled morning, the star-spangled sky over the Bighorns were flushed with fireworks this Fourth for the annual Independence Day celebration at the Bighorn Equestrian Center.
Before the fireworks show, festivities began with jams by Celtic Sage and The Powder River Boys--with plenty of dancing to accompany their tunes. There was also a “quick” art show by 12-year-old Lauren Sarantopulos; impromptu soccer, football and other games were also in the mix, but the common denominator between all these pre-show activities seemed to be just plain-old fun.
Sheridan Media's Betsy Love spoke with some cheeky teenagers, who were certainly partaking in the fun.
But he then added to his list of festivity favorites.
“Elephant ears,” by the way, are a type of fried bread rolled in sugar.
Some with a slightly longer view of the festivities mentioned they weren't just having a good time, but, you could say, a better time.
And the reactions to the show?
The fireworks were choreographed with music aired on Sheridan Media's Z94 FM. Wyoming Senator Bruce Burns, who moonlights as a fireworks connoisseur, hosted the show.
