On July 3, St. Johns County’s World Golf Village celebrated Independence Day with traditional music, food, bounce house fun and fireworks.
To kick off the festivities, the IMax theater hosted the new movie, “The Legend of Tarzan,” for those who did not want to brave the heat.
Outside, families could be seen carrying chairs and blankets onto the grass with coolers packed with food and drinks to share while music filled the air. Footballs were tossed, glow wands and necklaces swayed back and forth and sparklers were lit to pass the time.
At approximately 9:20 p.m., a hushed silence rolled over the crowd as the first hints of blazing color lit up the night sky. For more than 20 minutes, patriotic music accompanied a display of reds, blues and sparkling whites as fireworks flowed from the water’s edge and over the World Golf Hall of Fame building.
