Where was “Where’s Amy?” on the Fourth of July? I was having a blast at the annual 2015 CarmelFest. All of the branches of the military were represented including two life-sized Air Force marching bands and a slew of local celebrities, including a big red guy named Elmo! The highlight of my day was having the opportunity to meet the many veterans who had fought for our rights and freedom. I heard story after story of how these men served and fought for our nation. I took a minute from shooting pictures and paused – standing still watching the crowds of all generations cheer – I felt emotional inside and so blessed to be an American. Fun family activities, delicious food, music and a spectacular fireworks display rounded off the night with a big bang. Hands down, CarmelFest is the best place to be on the Fourth of July. Thank you to all of the CarmelFest committee ,members, veterans and local celebrities who came together to make it so special! “Where’s Amy?” salutes you!
