JULY 4th: sparkles despite wet weather
From page 1A
For some, the annual event is
simply a good chance to gorge on
deep-fried snacks, roasted turkey
legs or barbeque. There was also a
face-painting booth and lots of
sweet treats for sale.
As people filtered into the
grassy area inside the walking
track, a concert by the rock and
country Chris Marks Band kicked
off the evening. Following a quick,
drenching rain toward the end of
the band’s performance, the open-
ing ceremonies got under way, be-
ginning with a Parade of Patriots,
featuring Mayor Rick Murphrey in
Revolutionary garb, members of
the Kings Mountain Police Depart-
ment Explorer Post and others.
Murphrey, in his welcome com-
ments, spoke about patriotism —
its important two hundred years
ago and today. Erica Carpenter pro-
vided an invocation, Sophia Kell-
strom sang the national anthem and
the Loch Norman Pipe Band per-
formed a patriotic medley.
And then it was on to the battle
reenactment and the fireshow
demonstration, which sponsors say
is the largest of its kind between
Charlotte and Asheville.
As Candice Cristo picnicked on
the lawn, she soaked up summer
rays with her two children, her
brother and members of her ex-
* tended family.
“We come every year,” the
Kings Mountain woman said, as
her children ran and wrestled in a
blur of almost nonstop motion.
“We bring snacks and just let the
kids play. They love it.”
The downpour may have
thinned the crowd some, but most
were happy to wait out the wet
“We hid in our car a little during
that, but we knew we would stay,”
said Dawn Dellinger, who came
with her husband Tyler and seven-
month old daughter Olivia.
