BUFFALO and UNION — Fireworks lit up the skies of Union County Monday night as the birth of the United States of America was celebrated in Buffalo and Union.

Monday was the Fourth of July and the 240th anniversary of the Independence Day, the day the Declaration of Independence was signed and America declared its independence from Great Britain.

The 240th anniversary of the birth of the birth of the United States was celebrated in the Buffalo community and in the City of Union.

In Buffalo, the Glorious Fourth was celebrated with the “Party at the Pond,” the Buffalo community’s annual Fourth of July celebration. The celebration featured music and vendors and, as always, concluded with a fireworks display over the old Buffalo Mill Pond.

The Fourth of July in Union was celebrated with “Light Up the Lake” which was held as always at Foster Park Lake. The celebration featured music by “The Carolina Rhythm Band,” vendors selling food and other items for children and adults. The evening concluded with a fireworks display over the lake by Mike Sumner and East Coast Productions.

America turned 240 years young Monday, a milestone that, in Union County, is celebrated not once but twice, as is every birthday of the United States of America.
