Temple lights up sky
The service roads in Ruston were packed with vehicles by the time an explosion of fireworks was heard coming from the area around Temple Baptist Church on Tuesday.
What appeared to be more than a thousand people watched from their cars or lawn chairs as a collage of colors filled the sky during the church’s 15th annual fireworks display in celebration of the Fourth of July.
The show, which started around 9:30 p.m., consisted of about $10,000 worth of sponsor-funded fireworks said to be visible throughout the city. Many, however, drove closer to the church to get a better view.
