The 4th of July celebrations were enjoyed by hundreds of people around Madison County. The God and Country Celebration, held around Lake Francis, started out with a 5-K and Fun Run enjoyed by many. Later on that evening, vendors were set up around the lake along with entertainment for everyone’s enjoyment. Around 9 p.m., the fireworks lit up the sky over Lake Francis where locals gathered around to watch.
The Town of Greenville also had a wonderful turn out Friday, July 4, at Haffey Hayes Park where hundreds of people gathered to watch the fireworks display. People began gathering in the park as evening fell and the fireworks started as soon as it became dark enough to see them.
The Town of Lee, “Little But Proud” had a wonderful turnout Saturday night, July 5, as many gathered to watch the fireworks light up the night sky. The celebration started off with a bang as a sing was held at the Old Lee School that morning. Citizens gathered around Lake Brittany as dusk approached and fireworks began popping around 9 p.m.
