City of Homewood hosts 4th of July festival

Posted: Updated:

There were tons of events going on across central Alabama to help people celebrate Independence Day.

Here in Jefferson County, Homewood went all out for the Fourth of July, hosting a big family, friendly festival.

Walter Bradley and his family traveled from all the way to Alabama from North Carolina to be spend time with a friend from the Marine Corps.
"They invited us to come out here and they're kind of showing us around and brought us out here and we're enjoying it," Walter Bradley said.

Prior to joining the Military service, Walter says he never knew how much Independence Day meant to his country.
"I served three years in Iraq. I've lost really close friends over there and you just understand what it is and how grateful and blessed we are to live in the United States." Bradley added.

When the dark skies grew over us, people picked their spots to watch all of the firework action exploding from Vulcan Park.

All of the proceeds from the rides at Homewood's Fourth of July festival will benefit the Homewood High School band.
