St. Helena celebrates Fourth of July


St. Helenans celebrated Independence Day with a bike parade, two concerts, and a fireworks show over Crane Park.

The second annual bike parade, which was a hit last year, was even more popular this year, as scores of kids and parents started on Harvest Lane and wove their way through residential streets, decked out in patriotic gear.

The parade ended at Lyman Park just before the Saint Helena Community Band began its annual Independence Day concert, featuring a mix of old standards, pop tunes, and John Philip Sousa marches.

Hundreds of people attended the concert, with many taking advantage of free root beer floats courtesy of A&W.

On thousand people enjoyed the festivities at Crane Park with a concert by a Latin-Funk band named Bautista, along with lawn games, followed by a fireworks show.
