Patriotic, godfearing teens wait for fireworks, Alton, Mo.

They know how to celebrate in Alton, Mo. The whole town turned out for fireworks (really good ones), but first they had a local country band (Smith & Western!), a raffle and marching with the colors and prayer from the Boy Scouts. The entire crowd stood up with their hands on their hearts to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing along with the Star Spangled Banner, well warbled by a local woman. Kids rode ponies and a mechanical bull and kaBOOM!
