Small Town, Big Celebration
Lewisville may be a small town, but we sure know how to celebrate the Fourth of July. The ingredients are simple: good music, a lawn chair or blanket, some good eats, and people who enjoy being with each other. Oh, and spectacular fireworks, too!
This year’s big Fourth of July Celebration in Shallowford Square featured The DownTown Band playing non-stop under the pavilion till the last blast of the fireworks later in the evening. The band’s range of pop and southern and classic rock offered something for almost everyone.
As the evening wore on, the crowd had grown until it seemed that Shallowford Square could hold no more. Yet the celebration wasn’t limited to the Square. Folks had gathered all along the main thoroughfare through Lewisville and along nearby side streets to celebrate the Fourth of July with family and friends.
At some point during the fireworks display, the band performed Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA.” The song reminded me of the privilege we have to gather freely, to celebrate the foundations of our country — and even to have fun on the Fourth of July.
