ALBION – The skateboarding ramp provides a nice spot to watch the fireworks tonight at Bullard Park in Albion.

The High Point Community Church in Corfu paid for the fireworks show, and also served food, provided games and played Christian music at the park. This is the fourth straight July 5 that the church has put on the event for Albion.

Two girls are on the swings while the fireworks go off. They appear blurred because of the slow shutter speed on the camera.

Some young families watch the fireworks from another swingset at the park on Route 31.

People watched the fireworks from lawn chairs, picnic tables, blankets on the ground or many just stood to take in the sights and sounds.

The fireworks were launched from near the big sledding hill at the park.

Before the fireworks, the praise band at High Point played for the crowd. The church is looking to start a congregation in Albion.

Marci Jonathan is the bass guitarist in the praise band. Her brother Nate plays the drums and their father Dave also is in the band.

Melanie Dean, ceneter, is one of the singers in the priase band. Her father, Bobby Dean, is the church pastor. Her brother Matt is lead singer in the band and their brother Mike sings and plays guitar for the group.

Bobby Dean, pastor of the church, shares a message before the fireworks. Nate Jonathan is in back on the drums.

Matt Dean is a high-energy singer for the praise band.
