DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) - When it comes to the phrase 'rain or shine' most red-blooded Americans would certainly prefer the latter - especially on the 4th of July. But mother nature had different plans on Independence Day last year in the Tennessee Valley. Many venues had to content with flooding issues.
"I don't recall one this good - we had a lot of rain last year," explains park assistant manager James Brandon. "Typically it's just hot and muggy."
But besides lower humidity and clear skies there are some more changes to the Spirit of America Festival at Point Mallard Park in Decatur this year.
