Goodyear's Star Spangled 4th draws record crowds


GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (July 6, 2009) Goodyear's Star Spangled 4th Celebration drew record crowds and delivered memorable fun.


Attendance was slightly more than expected, with 12,414 people enjoying the festivities inside the gates of Goodyear Ballpark. Thousands more watched the APS Fireworks Spectacular from the parking lot and surrounding areas.


Admission and parking for the four-hour celebration and fireworks show was free. There was live music, activities and games, bouncers and inflatable rides for the kids, and a full assortment of food and beverage favorites from vendors inside the ballpark.


The F-16 flyover from Luke Air Force Base was right on schedule at 7 p.m. The evening's highlight was the 25-minute fireworks show that ended at 10 p.m.


Weather this year was hot, but generally clear. The fireworks show last year was cancelled because of high winds and monsoon activity.
