How Do You Celebrate The 4th Of July?

Every year, our community celebrates the 4th of July by hosting a concert and fireworks in the park! Families gather throughout the day for picnics and reunions and then – at nightfall – the main road is shut down and people pour out of their homes and into the streets to watch the fireworks.

I love the sense of camaraderie I feel with the people that gather during this time. Everyone is so friendly and happy – in all of the years I have attended, I have never witnessed even a minor incident!

I wish you all a safe and happy Independence Day and the most joyful of weekends!

    Thank you, as always, for hosting Friendship Friday, Ramona! We are spending some time with the family, watching the town’s fireworks show, and volunteering at the animal shelter (not all at the same time, of course. LOL). Have a happy 4th!

    We usually just sit home and watch the Capital fireworks on TV. Of course to watch fireworks all I have to do is walk out the door since my neighborhood is big into it! 😉
