A light drizzle fell as the Crossroads Band played Lynyrd Skynyrd covers to a sparse crowd Friday morning at Byron Memorial Park in Williamsport.
The band was the first of several acts that were booked to provide entertainment at Fireworks in the Park, an event the town has held since 2005 to celebrate the Fourth of July.
"I think the weather is kind of holding us back," Town Councilman Jeff Cline said, referring to the day's rain.
The event usually draws about 3,000 people, who gather early to watch the 45-minute fireworks display at night, Cline said. At noon, about 50 people -- a vast majority of them vendors or performers -- were at the park.
