Sweltering temperatures on Saturday didn’t deter hundreds of people from heading out to J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill for the city’s annual Fourth of July festivities.
Festival-goers enjoyed food vendors, water slides for children, fireworks and more as part of the annual event.
Many were seated under the shade of the park’s oak trees as they enjoyed live tunes such as “Margaritaville,” “Mustang Sally” and more from the Heart ‘N Soul Band.
Food and craft vendors were set up under the pavilion offering sweet treats, fair food, cool watermelon and more. Children also enjoyed getting glitter tattoos and face paintings.
Lauren and Brandon McNeal were seeking the shade of the pavilion after walking around the park. They came from Pooler with their son, Max.
“I usually come for the (Great Ogeechee) Seafood Festival and I thought it would be the same,” Lauren McNeal said. “(The event) is cool so far, it’s just really hot.”
The holiday festivities continue in South Bryan on Wednesday when Fort McAllister will host its annual Fourth of July program. The event begins at 10 a.m. and will feature Civil War-era games, re-enactors and ice cold watermelon. The cost is $6.50 for adults and $3.75 for children.
For more information, call 727-2339.
