Pic of the Week: Fireworks Explode Over Child on a Beach

The wonders of a child playing on a beach as fireworks explode overhead.

Check out this incredible photo of a child playing on a Lake Erie beach called The Wild Waves as the water lapped over the sand, exploding with color from July 4th fireworks. 

"This picture really depicts our 4th July tradition in our little beach community," said Not Fake News member Kit Dietz, whose friend, John Nuhn, of Vermillion Township, Ohio, captured the image on his phone. 

"I’m sure this isn’t the visual image most people have of Ohio, but this is a small slice of the best of Ohio on Lake Erie. We are fortunate to have lived in such a wonderful place for the past 41 years,"  Dietz said.
