Bessemer flings American banner high

By Tom Stankard

BESSEMER - "Bombs" bursted in air over Massie Field during the breathtaking "Thunder on the Mountain" fireworks display Monday evening to complete a week-long "Bessemer Blast" Fourth of July celebration.

Sitting on lawn chairs and blankets, hundreds, if not thousands, came to Massie Field to watch.

Before the show, Marty's Goldenaires Drum and Bugle Corps performed a variety of patriotic songs to entertain the crowd.

The audience oohed and awed as fireworks bursted into the evening.

Earlier in the day at Massie Field, children and their families competed in games and races.
