Grove City celebrated the Fourth of July Friday with an evening of entertainment, food and fireworks at Beulah Park, which closed as a thoroughbred racetrack May 3.

With contract talks in process for Continental Real Estate Cos. to purchase the 213-acre property from Penn National Gaming, it may be the last city civic celebration staged there. But with fine weather, the Blast certainly went out with a bang on July 4, 2014.
