Families gathered on lawn chairs and blankets and in yards and driveways while others relaxed in the backs of pickup trucks to watch the annual Independence Day fireworks display at Fennwood Hills Country Club in Zachary on Monday. The event is Zachary’s only official fireworks display slated for every Fourth of July.

While waiting for the show to start, children enjoyed their own light show by playing with glow-in-the-dark toys, setting off colored smoke bombs and lighting sparklers.
