Four days of drenching rains failed to discourage the thousands who attended the annual Fourth of July Fiestas at Plaza Park over the weekend. People from all over showed up for the music, fun, fellowship, food and festivities. Some of the heavy rains caused people to scatter, but as the clouds cleared, the crowds returned.

Natalie was just one of many to perform on the Plaza bandstand, as a bevy of bands and dancing troupes shared the platform throughout the events.
