Bartlett’s blazing skies

Every year, Bartlett celebrates the nation's independence with a spectacular fireworks show. This year's presentation was on July 3. Photo by Scott Steele.

Confetti poppers are a fun alternative to blistering-hot sparklers for Ashlyn Rye, 6, with a little help from her dad, Nathan. Their family and others were gathered at Faith Baptist to see the fireworks being launched over nearby W.J. Freeman Park in Bartlett. Photo by Scott Steele.

Bartlett's Independence Day fireworks are far-reaching enough that people from blocks around can see the sky show. The city put on the show for free as a family-friendly event on July 3. Photo by Scott Steele.
