The Orange Riverfront Pavilion and Boardwalk was packed with hundreds upon hundreds of guests this past Monday to enjoy the annual Fourth of July concert and fireworks display over the Sabine River. The fireworks extravaganza, shown with Old Glory flying in the midst of the display, delighted all ages and could be seen for miles from the pavilion grounds.
