Matlock family

​The Matlack family (Aaron holding Victoria and Christy holding Lane) come every year. The kids like the face painting and pony rides the best. 

Face painting, photo booth, pony rides, a bouncy house and more combined with free sno cones, watermelon, cookies, pizza and hot dogs with music in the background and an occasional squirt from the fire truck made for a memorable 4th of July event at Memorial Drive Baptist Church. The festivities started with a parade that went down Piney Point with all Memorial Villages being represented by a float.

Norma and Victor Alvarez (judges - shh, it's a secret) explained the criteria. The winner was the City of Bunker Hill's float as it met all the criteria - a patriotic theme, quality of the execution, excitement, (a cannon went off a few times and the tow truck was done well too) and the overall effect.
