It was a star-spangled night of family oriented fun and celebration July 2 at Seminole State Park’s Fourth of July fireworks celebration. Organizers planned for a great pyrotechnic show and they did not disappoint. Illuminated by the rockets’ red glare in the sky and the smiling and glowing faces all around, the post hurricane park shined as its workers, supporters and all in attendance proudly celebrated the nation’s independence, as well as the park and the community’s remarkable and ongoing recovery from Hurricane Michael’s devastation.
The fireworks may be over, but the celebration of living life well at Seminole State Park continues. In addition to camping, boating, swimming, picnicking and fishing, natural beauty, and all the joy it brings, is on display in every direction each and every day and night at Seminole State Park.
Jason Parker, park naturalist commented, “One of the most rewarding things about being the park naturalist is getting to show people things that I love about my park. It could be anything from helping someone get amazing pictures of a beautiful yellow lotus swaying gracefully in the breeze above the water to watching eagles on their nest and an always beautiful Seminole sunset.”
