An estimated 30,000 people came to Lakeland’s Red, White & Kaboom Independence Day celebration and fireworks at Lake Mirror despite the Sunday evening rains, Fox 13 News reports. The July 3 rains have become a bit of a norm, according to city of Lakeland spokesman Kevin Cook. (There will be more fireworks in Lakeland tonight following the Lakeland Flying Tigers game at Joker Marchant Stadium.)
