Posted: Updated:

Nearly two months after July 4th fireworks were canceled, The City of Lynn Haven finally got the chance to put on the show.

The Independence Day party turned into a tribute to labor day.

For many families, fireworks at A.L. Kinsual park are a tradition.

"we do this every 4th of.. Well 4th of July we normally do it. We get about 20 to 25 friends and family together," said Dale Koffer, resident.

Typically, the fireworks happen on the July 4th, but this year the heavy rain and flooding got in the way.

Almost two months later, the party prevailed and they got to celebrate two holidays in one.

"We are happy we are putting it on today(Saturday), a little bit late, but we are also recognizing a good labor day weekend which is well deserved," said Lynn Haven Mayor Walter Kelley.

The festival was complete with food vendors, arts and crafts, plenty of fun for the kids, live music and even a car show.

To some people, the event has a deeper meaning.

"It brings us all together. We are all one team in this country, it doesn't matter where we are at we have to be a team so we can make our city better tomorrow than it was today," said Mayor Kelley. "By all of us working together, playing together, raising families together... We'll make this a better nation than what it is today. "
