Some folks in the metro spent the holiday weekend admiring some vintage rides.

Classic car and truck owners competed for prizes and bragging rights during the Fenders and Fireworks Classic Car show at Lakeshore Park.

The event, sponsored by BankPlus, was part of the 5th Annual Independence Celebration at the Reservoir.

There were activities for the kids, static military displays, food and even a beer garden.

Folks were also treated to live music featuring the Reservoir area's own Jay Herrington and the Dylan Moss Band.

"We love family time. We love making family memories. this is perfect for families," said Chrissie Grantham who brought her family to the event for the first time. "I'm glad that Brandon has this so we can come out and have good memories for the Fourth of July and we pulled up and we saw the huge flag out there and all of our kids, we all go emotional."

The celebration culminated with a dual fireworks show on both sides of the REZ.
