Faces of the Fourth of July: several Valley arm-strong, tug-of-war types, who eventually lost, at right. There were concessions galore, games of all kinds, live music by the Higher Power Band, people cooking, lounging on the grass, and trying to find friends who said they would meet by the band shell.
Stories this photo appears in:
Gage, 2, and Gavin Palace, 3, normally blend into a crowd simply because they only come up to an adult’s knee, but on the Fourth of July they stood out proudly, on account of their blond Mohawks painted with the stars and stripes. At Payson’s annual Fourth of July children’s games, the boys showcased their mother Kyndra Conlon’s artistic talent.
