It's been one long weekend of beer, barbecue and friends and the 4th of July weekend culminated - in a big way - on Main Street in Belton. Well over 100 floats were in the Belton Parade including Miss Temple, CGI, FC Belton soccer, and tons more. Our photographer tried to get every float that went by, which was created by the hands of the people in our community.

This year's theme in Belton was "Traveling the USA", which brought out tons of great patriotic works to the streets.

After the parade, the Festival on Nolan's Creek was the place to by. Sure, it was hot (almost 100 degrees!), but there wwas plenty of shade, snow cones and of course, the creek itself to keep everyone cool.

Check out the floats in the Belton 4th of July Parade as well as some candids at the Nolan Creek Festival! Have a happy and safe 4th of July as you wait for the incoming fireworks in Bell County!
