Pollock Fireworks

Just north of here is the little town of Pollock, LA.  The mayor, Jerome Scott is a close personal friend and has been for many years.  He's also a great American who is trying to bring sleepy little Pollock into a place where the residents can thrive.  He's doing a great job.

One of the things he's done (other than attracting business and industry), is to initiate a great fireworks display on the 4th of July.  He's been doing this for over ten years and every year it gets a little bigger and better.  This year was no exception.

Folks come from all over this part of Louisiana to watch the show.  Belle and I have been attending for years, and this year I took the time to do a little retail politics.  Pollock is not in the jurisdiction that I serve, but the voters come here to sclebrate America, so I took the opportunity to make friends.

As the sun went down, we all sat under the pine trees to watch a fantastic fireworks display.  This thing lasted 30 minutes, but I managed to capture one minute of the display.

Trigger warning.  If you have PTSD, you might want to leave this one alone.

This is small-town America at its best.

Good looking sign, and nice fireworks! So Pollock is still a sleepy little town? Not surprised.
