Fireworks speak of heritage

Every year, friends and family gather around and take the time to celebrate their community events.

Our community just finished enjoying Winsted Summer Festival for another year.

It’s a tradition from within, to have such an event from year to year.

The children run and play, the teens are busy with volleyball and other activities. The adults partake in barbecues, music, games, reminiscing, and later on, the fireworks displays bring people flocking to Mills Reserve Park and Lake Promenade.

Friends and family watch the unfolding fireworks show over beautiful Winsted Lake, sending many oohs and aahs of appreciation as a burst of rockets follows a towering Roman candle. Multiple explosions of many colored star-bursts, pinwheels, and trailing comet tails flash across the sky.

Everything breaks loose with a spectacular grand finale, with a sky full of reds, greens, blues, and golds on behalf of this special occasion.

There is something of beauty when there are fireworks displayed within any community. It brings a smile to many faces and sends a message of gathering folks together. All ages enjoy watching the bright dazzling display of beauty unfolding even though, every year, it’s a different display.

Fireworks are an essence of a heritage within each community that displays them from year to year.
