Will you be going to your town's fireworks this year?

My kids aren't super into it so I think we'll wing it and decide that day. It's just such a damn zoo that I hate schlepping there if no one is gung ho for it, kwim?

What about you? Are you going? Does your town even do fireworks? (Ours was cut from budget but residents raised money for it)

  • no fireworks are illegal almost everywhere in my area. Theres major firework shoes like one in seattle but over 50,000 people will be there so we arent going to deal with the traffic since we live over an hours from seattle but thats the closet firework show to us

  • We are going to lay on my bed and watch them. We live three blocks away from the park where they light them off. We don't see the ground display, but we figure since we can watch them for free it is a fine trade off.

  • My community already had theirs this past weekend (Community Day) - it was soo nice. Not too crowded and not on the actual holiday when lots of people will be out and about and drinking!

  • No. Every time we try to go it's a pure disaster... We'll just watch them from home.

  • I just saw a poster for it on my way to work this morning. I would consider it, but we're going out of town for the 4th. I will watching the fireworks off the pier in Surfside Beach, South Carolina! I think it'll be a little bit better than my hometown show. ; )
