Clarksville’s Independence Day Fireworks Show Stunning Spectacle!

With three simultaneous fiery launches, the City of Clarksville’s Independence Day celebration took off with a profound determination to strut its stuff. And strut, it did! A fierce display of dazzling lights and pops, shimmering whistles and eye-popping star bursts filled the night sky at McGregor Park. Lasting approximately 45 minutes, the city gave its residents a truly impressive sight and sound extravaganza.

During the lead up to the fireworks show, a crowd of thousands gathered along the length of McGreggor Park with lawn chairs and blankets, strollers and assorted cooling diversions. Local area agencies set up convenience stands along with commercial vendors to offer iced water, bottled water, funnel cakes, kettle corn, hot dogs, burgers, snow cones, and a myriad of service information. Music performances by the Chris Robinson Band and Hypertension carried the crowd through the evening until the launch of the main event.

A comprehensive photo gallery is below the fold

Here then are some images from Clarksville’s “Blowout On The River!” Thanks must given to the Parks and Recreation Dept. people, the Clarksville Police Department and CTS. Also of note, the Eternal Flame was burning brightly tonight! And now, WOW-W-W!!!!
