Do you usually host a summer BBQ? Do you go to see fireworks on the 4th of July? If so, where do you usually go to watch them?

We picnic in the park with everyone else. There's a water park, skate board park, baseball games, pond with paddle boats, you name it ... and it's at the park. The fireworks show is there too ... lay back on your pillow and watch the stars burst into flames!

I don't usually host a BBQ.  We don't go to see fireworks since it got kind of rowdy.

We will be bringing food to a holiday celebration that a friend is having.

I don't usually host one, but we do go to one as a family. We shoot our own fireworks on the 4th of July, that's my favorite part. But last year we did go to the city's firework show.

 No, I don't normally host but we always see the fireworks. My grandmother usually throws one.

My friends usually host the BBQ around the July 4th and we love to do the fireworks!

We usually do a cookout and fireworks with friends and family at our house. This year I'm trying a clam bake for the first time. Hopefully it will be fun for everyone.
