A Spectacular 4th on Display in Salem

July 17, 2015

The town celebrated the 4th of July holiday with a night of exciting fireworks.

With thousands of people inside and around Grant Field and many more watching from locations all over Salem, residents were treated to fireworks that many thought was the best that they had ever seen.  As locals filled the field, there was a great sense of party and celebration.  There was face painting for the youngsters, food and drink, and DJ music, which got many in the audience up and dancing.

Many in the crowd also brought Frisbees and beach balls that added to the festiveness of the evening.  The fog of smoke from sparklers filled the air.  When the fireworks started and the smoke flashed with the colors of the fireworks above, it made it even more spectacular.
