Close to 11,000 visitors filled Earl Adams Park, Breinigsville, for the annual Breinigsville Independence Day Fireworks spectacular sponsored by Carl Schmoyer, III with Schmoyer, Trexler and J.S. Burkholder funeral homes.

On hand to help celebrate the founding of the United States of America, July 4, 1776, was the Municipal Band of Allentown and radio and television personality “Uncle” Jeffrey Tapler.

Food trucks were swamped with some completely running out of food before the night was over.
