Rincon puts on a show

There’s no doubt Rincon officials were pleased with how the Freedom Rings celebration turned out Friday night.

A very large crowd, armed with blankets on which to sit and camera phones at the ready, gathered on Freedom Park’s grounds. The park is Rincon’s latest acquisition, and the 20 acres provided not only ample space to watch the laser show but also adequate room for parking.

And Rincon’s leaders seemed to be overwhelmed at the turnout Friday night.

“We thank you for supporting this event,” Rincon Mayor Ken Lee told the assembled crowd, just minutes before the laser show began.

The Rincon Police Department also did its best to ease traffic flow after the laser show. Signs directed northbound traffic to light at Walgreen’s, so it could turn left onto Highway 21 safely and easily. Southbound traffic was directed toward the intersection at the post office, where it could turn right down 21 — though there were plenty of people who took the southbound direction and made a u-turn at the Towne Park and 21 light to head back north.
