Bonnie Showalter wasn't about to let a broken ankle keep her away from Sunday's Independence Day choral and band concert Sunday in Hagerstown City Park.

Showalter and her husband, Henry, have been coming to the concerts in the park since they moved to Hagerstown 12 years ago. This time, Bonnie Showalter had to use a wheelchair.
"I'm tired of being in the house," she said.
About 1,000 people came out to hear the Hagerstown Municipal Band and Hagerstown Choral Arts perform a patriotic free concert at the park.
"I can't think of a better place to be on the Fourth of July," said Millie Eichelberger, 60, of Hagerstown. "We have all this talent in Hagerstown and the surrounding area. How many towns have something like this?"
