HALIFAX– While the afternoon activities scheduled on the Town Green almost didn’t happen due to a lack of funding, the Halifax Fourth of July celebration went off as scheduled thanks to a generous last-minute donation from the Halifax Country Club.
The activities included bouncy inflatables, a petting zoo, a balloon artist, face painting, a DJ, as well as games for children. There were also snacks and an ice-cream truck.
Later on in the evening, a large crowd gathered on the lawn behind Halifax Elementary School in preparation for the big fireworks show. Although some of the earlier activities were still available, as the evening got darker townspeople entertained themselves.
Shortly after 9:15 p.m., an approximately 20-minute firework spectacular began to cheers from the crowd. While it was only 20 minutes, the colorful display felt like it lasted for hours.
The only downside was the intense traffic on Route 106 after the celebratory day ended. All-in-all residents from Halifax and surrounding towns appeared to have a wonderful time taking in not only the fireworks, but all of the other happenings offered.
