Thunder in the Park was a Great Success
Even though the threat of rain could have put a damper on the Thunder in the Park celebration at Wilson Park, located in Union County, TN, it was a great success. The smiling faces of our vendors, the smiles and the joy expressed on the faces of local folks and visitors from other counties as they viewed the antique cars, listened to the live band, mingled through the crowd and visited with friends and neighbors is what made it such a great success. The fact that some of the vendors sold out of their products and others have already requested a space at next year's celebration is a testament to the success of this year's Thunder in the Park festivities.
We had a booth near the entrance and as thousands of folks came by, my son and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and talking with old and new friends as they signed up for our online newsletter. I want to thank Mayor Mike Williams, and all the supporters of both this year and last year's event for their leadership. I also want to thank the folks that, in spite of the threat of rain, brought those beautiful antique cars. The fireworks that started at 9:00 pm were spectacular. This event will be a lasting memory in the mind of everyone that attended and should remind us that Union County, TN is a great place to work and play.
A special thanks goes to the security officers of the Union County Sheriff's Department for the safety and traffic control they provide at these events.
