Fireworks

The fireworks are spectacular every year. (Click photo for larger images.)

You couldn’t have asked for better weather to celebrate Independence Day in Rancho Murieta. This Fourth of July dialed back the heat to deliver a sunny day with temperatures consistent with a great round on the North Course. It was the perfect day to do a 5K run, have a pancake breakfast, watch a parade, go to a carnival, dance at sunset, and end the evening with fireworks at the front lake.
