HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The Village of Providence starts a new Fourth of July tradition this year. The residential and commercial community, now in its 10th year, is celebrating Independence Day with music and fireworks on July 4th.
While the Village of Providence hosts many events during the summer months, this is the first year for a fireworks show. Organizers are not starting small, though. Todd Slyman, one of the town founders, says the display was the largest show in North Alabama.
The U.S. Army Materiel Command Band's "Sonic Fusion" group played for the crowd of hundreds of people who brought lawn chairs and blankets to the park.
The show was sponsored by the Village of Providence restaurants and other businesses.
