In small town Bel Air the 4th of July starts out with a variety of events at the local high school. There's a little something for everyone- whether it be pie eating, frog-jumping, or a watermelon eating contest. Later in the day, people line Main Street to watch the parade floats and bands as they pass by. After the parade everyone makes their way back over to the high school to spread a blanket and get ready to watch the fireworks show. Kids run around with sparklers glowing and neon necklaces of all colors. After the last traces of fire and smoke disappear from the skies above people gather their belongings and head on home.
