GOOD TURNOUT DESPITE WET WEATHER
Another Fourth of July has come and gone in Louisa, KY, an despite the extremely wet weather we’ve had the past week, the rain stopped long enough for folks to enjoy the holiday parade, great music in the city park, and fireworks. Some veterans of Lawrence County showed up for the event to celebrate the Fourth of July with friends and family.
At the Louisa City Park, there were plenty of tents selling food, drinks, t-shirts and other items. Mayor Harold Slone spoke to the audience about all the great events happening in Louisa. He mentioned the fireworks happening this year for Independence Day were going to be the largest and best show the city has ever had. He announced the city pool would be opening on that day at 6 p.m. and kids would get in free.
A good size crowd turned out for the festivities that included music from several bluegrass bands such as Hammertowne, Kevn Prater Band, Five for the Gospel, Tommy Webb Band, Steel River Road, Robin Tackett and Midnight Storm, and Lawrence County’s favorite son, the legendary Larry Cordle. The audience even had a chance to join in on the open mic session, in which just a couple did.
The crowd cheered throughout the evening – dancing, laughing and enjoying time being free with their friends and family. The event was a great spectacular and one that is always great for the city of Louisa.
Cordle wrapped up the evening’s entertainment and performed some of his big hits including Black Diamond Strings, Pud Marcum, and Highway 40 Blues.
The Fourth of July celebration was capped off with a fireworks display at 10:00 pm.
