Celebrating Eagle Rock’s 100th year, the free fireworks display at Eagle Rock Park brought the community together with a big lovely bang. It seemed like the whole town turned out--we had to park many blocks away and hike in to the park. Ronny and the Classics played some good old Rock and Roll. There were booths staffed by the various Eagle Rock civic groups from TERA to the Chamber of Commerce to the Eagle Rock High Boosters. Classic cars parked on the field provided more browsing opportunities. There were food booths for everything from funnel cakes and kettle corn to Chinese food. We had some very tasty Argentinian grilled sausages spiced with ChimmiChurri sauce served in a roll with fresh salad and rice.
The weather couldn’t have been better: not too hot yet clear and balmy.
The crowd was mellow and friendly with lots of kids, lots of families. We all oohed and aahed at the fireworks which were at least 15 minutes of colors and swizzles and sparklers and booms. The crowd cheered and celebrated and then we all walked back to our cars. Happy 3rd of July, Eagle Rockers!
