Since my Dad retired from the Fire Station we haven't been to Sandy City's festival they have every year on the 4th. We would always go because he was usually asked to help out since a big part of the festival gives the public a chance to see fire trucks, life flight, and the fighting of fires in action. There also is lot of food, entertainment and games for the kids to play.
We got there around 12:00 and stayed for a few hours. Most of the things the kids did were free or very little money. They did a few crafts, got their faces painted, got balloon animals and then we went to see Life Flight land with Grandpa Barker. We then got to see the new firetruck and then the girls went to play on the bounce houses for a little while.
After we headed to Grandma and Grandpa Ferran's for dinner and then fireworks. It was the first year that Utah allowed fireworks that fly over 15 feet and the whole night the whole valley was filled. We had a few of our own and it made the fireworks show a lot better than previous years. The Neighbors spent some good money and so we were able to watch all of their aerials to finish our July 4th Holiday.
