Sunday’s fireworks show at Wheeler Branch Park was a blast – literally.

“Ooo”s” and “ahhhh”s filled the air as each fiery explosion of color filled the sky for a few moments and reflected on the lake’s surface.

More than 1,000 people converged on the park, some arriving during the day to swim and have a picnic.

The local band 3 Rivers Shine performed under the pavilion and some dancers wore bikinis and swim trunks as they swayed to the music. The Somervell County Water District, Glen Rose Convention & Visitors Bureau, Glen Rose Chamber of Commerce and Luminant underwrote the $20,000 show.

Organizers already are planning next year’s event.
