Uncomfortable weather Wednesday evening kept turnout low for Barrington’s annual Independence Day parade, but the same couldn’t be said for the fireworks display at Woodland School.
Highlights of the parade included appearances by the softball, soccer and wrestling state champions from Haddon Heights High School, along with regional elected officials, Barrington organizations and regional emergency vehicles.
By the time the fireworks display started just after 9:30 p.m. in front of well over 1,000 people at Woodland School (and more in surrounding areas and in the Home Depot parking lot), more rain seemed unlikely — but the continued heat and very high humidity led to some unhappy children while the crowd waited for darkness.
When the fireworks did begin, however, the crowd was treated to a solid 15-minute spectacular.
