GOOD HOPE, Ala. – Crowds of locals packed Municipal Park in Good Hope Sunday night for a celebration of the Fourth of July Holiday and after enjoying a horse parade put on by the Branded by Christ Cowboy Church, Good Hope Fire and Rescue got this year’s fireworks show underway. P. Willy’s Fireworks provided the materials for the show and Good Hope Fire and Rescue Chief David Scott was more than happy to work with them.

“We use P. Willy’s Fireworks here in Good Hope and they’re just super nice people. They helped us out and as a matter of fact they donated a lot of the fireworks themselves. They’re great people and they help set the show up for us.”

Independence Day is the driving force behind the show, but Scott is also happy that a layer of faith and worship has been added to the celebration as well.

“We had a fireworks show previously at the church we were at before and brought it over to Good Hope and they were kind enough to help us with it and let us the facility here to have our show,” Scott said. “We went to send a message of Christ with our Fourth of July celebration and have Christ involved in it. We’ve blended it all together into one with the Branded by Christ Cowboy Church, Good Hope Fire and Rescue, the City of Good Hope and P. Willy’s Fireworks.”

Scott has seen the Good Hope community respond in a positive way to the show over the last couple years and was excited to see Municipal Park packed once again.

“Last year the parking lot was full, and people were everywhere, and it was just amazing,” Scott said. “They come out to see the fireworks and they get to hear the word from our pastor. He has a short message to let everyone know that Jesus Christ loves you and that’s what it’s all about.”
