The Covington News - - OPINION -

Seem­ingly thou­sands came to the Square for the Fourth of July fire­works. What do you think of the show?

Tina McCrory: “We were sur­prised that they started be­fore 9:40, too, but they were awe­some! We re­ally en­joyed them!” Lau­rie Mal­com Walker: “We watched from the park­ing lot at New Life praise cen­ter on stone moun­tain street. . Great view and great people.”

Angie DeKiere: “It was great, we need more kids ac­tiv­i­ties though. But we still had fun!”

Bradley Cameron

Walden: “Awe­some show but was sur­prised at how few ven­dors were there and not a lot of things for kids to do.”

Cyrelle GW: “It was awe­some, first time com­ing to the square. My 5yrs old was amazed!!”

Randi Lee Lester said:

“It’s not just what I think of the fire­works show, it’s what I think of the whole day. I vis­ited the Square sev­eral times to­day, be­tween watch­ing the Peachtree Road Race, smok­ing some ribs and watch­ing the Braves win their 8th straight. We had a cook­out with some friends and then drove our golf cart to the Square. En­joyed some re­ally great mu­sic and com­pletely en­joyed the di­ver­sity of age, color and mu­sic as well as the fab­u­lous fire­works.

I have only lived here 8 years, but I was so proud of my new home­town. Spe­cial ku­dos go out to the Mayor, City Man­ager, City Coun­cil, the Arts As­so­ci­a­tion, Main Street and so many oth­ers for mak­ing this spe­cial day pos­si­ble. For those of you who think the money could have been bet­ter spent else­where, I say “Bah, hum­bug”; this cel­e­bra­tion is just what Cov­ing­ton needed.

The “Drive Time” band is the best party band I have ever heard, and they’re all “home grown”. To­day I was proud to be an Amer­i­can and a Cov­ing­to­nian.”
