Patriotic music played over a loudspeaker as hundreds of families with small children on bicycles, in strollers and driving motorized cars, filled the park at Fisher Fountain Thursday for a Fourth of July extravaganza.

The annual Independence Day celebration at Fisher Fountain, hosted by YWCA Adams County, gives families the chance to play games, enjoy a meal and participate in a parade just for the youngsters.

The celebration has grown over the years and passed the 1,000 person attendance benchmark in 2012.

This was the first time for Kate Meyer and her daughter, Gabi, were able to attend the event.

"We usually go out of town, but this year the plan failed so we decided to come out and see what its all about," said Kate Meyer, who along with her daughter, Gabi, attended the event for the first time. "It's pretty impressive."
