I went to Hope Mills for their 4th of July Celebration. If you like the small town feeling, this is the place to be.
We started out the day with a parade. Granted this is not the biggest parade I had ever seen but it definitely was the loudest and most patriotic. The kids just had a blast watching all of the Fire Engines come by and blasting their horns. There were John Deere tractors all dressed up for the 4th, the Roller Rogue Girls skated by giving out candy. It just gave me chills along with a warm down home feeling.
Later in the day everyone went to the municpal park for music, games, food and a whole day of festive activities. The food was great. Everywhere you looked people were having fun.
Later in the evening, everyone convened at Hope Mills Lake for an awesome fireworks display. The colors reflecting off of the lake were just gorgeous. Everyone really had a blast. As I sat by the lake, I felt a great sense of pride to know that I am in America’s Hometown celebrating the 4th and it came to me why Cumberland County is called America’s Hometown. That’s just what we are. It’s not something we try to do, it’s just something we are. Next year come and join us!!
