In the distance you can hear the eagles call. A deep voice similar to Epcot's storyteller begins, "America the land where eagles soar, since history began its people have celebrated the magnificence of this land." Native chants are heard. As the narrator continues, "Tonight we celebrate America, a land of many peoples, a country that continues to grow, a nation of courage, and independence. America the Beautiful!"
Trumpet fanfare accompanies the pyro sprays of red, white and blue.
