When I was a kid, there were very few things I looked forward to more than the Fourth of July. I got to be around my friends, family and, of course, watch the fireworks. There was nothing cooler than the fireworks when I was little! As I got older and older, I would try to get closer and closer to the fireworks to see if they would actually fall on me.

They didn't, but they did give me memories that will last a lifetime. This year, the Fireworks Festival is sure to create some amazing memories for the kids that are here. Check out these pics of the Kids of the Fireworks Festival 2012.
