ALBANY, GA (WALB) - July 4th is a day for many of you to celebrate our nation's independence, either at home with family and friends, or getting out to watch some fireworks somewhere in south Georgia.
That was the case in Downtown Albany on Friday, and as many as 10,000 people were expected for the big show.
It's the day where we pay tribute to the red, white, and blue.
"Freedom, family and friends, just enjoying the day," said Rebecca Brock, Lee County.
On this 4th of July like in many other cities, Albany invited all surrounding communities to this year's celebration.
"When a lot of people get together and they organize a great event people will come. We're expecting a little more than ten thousand people, it's going to be an awesome event," Don Buie, Albany Downtown Manager.
The show is what most people came for, enjoying moments with family and friends just hours before the big show.
"There was talk in the beginning that we would have it in the back of the Civic Center, but you couldn't pick a more awesome view than to have the fireworks shooting over the flint," said Buie.
Everyone who had a seat at Riverfront Park where just hours away from what's dubbed the largest fireworks display in Georgia, south of Atlanta.
On this day where the colors of the flag dot the landscape many still remember those still fighting to maintain our freedom.
"Remember those that are overseas that fight for this to be possible, for us to enjoy this occasion. If it wasn't for them we wouldn't be able to celebrate holidays like this," said John Crowder, Sylvester.
Shortly after dark the crow wasn't disappointed as lights of almost ever color of the rainbow lit the sky choreographed to music.
"In the future it's only going to get bigger and better," said Buie.
The Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th 1776 declaring independence from Great Britain.
