Delano 4th of July offers blazing entertainment

Crowds flocked to Delano for its four-day Fourth of July celebration and swelled the population of the city well beyond its usual 5,000 inhabitants. Festivities included baseball, softball and beanbag tournaments, along with a 5K race, royalty coronation, kiddie parade, bands, food, fireworks, carnival and more. The July 4 parade took center stage. (Photos by Bill Nord)
