For 50 years, the skies over North Omaha were clogged with glorious July 4th fireworks. The same park where those happened holds a history of golfing, picnics, after school and summer programs, and a lot more, including a long-forgotten baseball history! Adam, tell us about the history of Fontenelle Park.
