The sky lit up over Bryan-College Station Sunday night, but it was not because of fireworks.
Instead a professional laser light show is how many celebrated our nation's independence.
The show was part of the "I Love America" Celebration at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum that featured live music and other free entertainment.
"This July 4th Celebration that we put on here in College Station is really important to me. I've been playing here since I was a about eight years old and so I moved away for about 7 years so to come back and be asked to play as the headliner band I am thrilled to do it," said Kathy Ross, a singer from Bryan.
"Instead of burning stuff down we are going to light stuff up but we also have concessions out here; roasted ears of corn, sausage on a stick, ice cold drinks provided by Coca-Cola," said Don Dickenson, I Love America Planning Committee Chairman for the College Station Noon Lions Club.
This was the 13th annual event at the Library .
