The Fourth Of July In Downtown Lafayette

Fireworks Over Lafayette

Last night we went up to Lafayette to celebrate the 4th of July. The Stars and Stripes Celebration put on by the two cities is always a good one. The highlight of the night is the fireworks show. I left the plaza to get up to the roof of a nearby parking garage with this photo in mind. Independence Day hit a little differently this year. It felt like independence from a lot of things after a year of quarantine.

The Lafayette Citizens Band Concert

This year was the first year that I went down for the concert in Riehle Plaza. I am usually somewhere getting ready for the fireworks photo. This year though I just had a short walk to my location so I listened to the first half of the show. When the band played the Purdue fight song I got goosebumps. The rest of the songs are good, but I started thinking about this fall and the fact that the fans and the band will be back at sporting events. I started thinking about a packed Ross Ade Stadium in just a couple of months. I didn’t realize just how ready I was for things to get back to normal until I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Below are a couple of bonus photos from a fun night in downtown Lafayette.
