Happy 242nd Birthday America!
Cold Spring celebrated Independence Day 2018 on June 30, a sizzling Saturday. With temperatures well into the 90s, a parade led by 100-year-old World War II veteran Joe Etta kicked things off, followed by contests for pie-baking, bicycle-decorating and patriotic pets, live music and food and refreshments on the riverfront. A rousing fireworks display lit up the night sky to end the festivities.
