Fun Fourth Festivities are well underway in downtown Greensboro. In the above photo taken last night, on East McGee Street, spectators were waiting for the 10K runners to start rolling in at the Fun Fourth 10K Freedom Run. There was also a 1 mile Fun Run for families and beginners.
Today's events on Elm Street will stretch from Friendly Avenue to Gate City Boulevard. The fun will conclude with the Fireworks Concert at Davie and Market Street. The free concert will start at 8:45 p.m. and the fireworks will start at 9:25. Hopefully, it will work out for the best, having the bulk of the festivities located downtown. If you attend, be sure to wear red, white, and blue! We will all be missing the smiling face of Betty Cone; however, this year's organizers, planners, and sponsors, have worked tirelessly provide Greensboro with a good, patriotic done of family fun.
By the way, there are also fireworks after the Grasshoppers' baseball game tonight. Wonder if there is a good vantage point for watching both displays.
