When are you celebrating the 4th?


Recommended Posts

Just curious, does anyone else live in a town here in the US that has their parades, shows and fireworks going on today (the 3rd) because the 4th lands on a Sunday this year? Just curious....

There will be tons of fireworks exhibits tonight, as well as tomorrow night. As I was leaving Oceans of Fun after getting my swim in, they were shutting down the streets leading into the park and setting up barracades to keep people from going up that way. The display will be as a part of the Worlds of Fun celebration. The fireworks will be showcased both nights. I'm tempted to head out with my digi camera to pick up some nice shots, but :( I have a million other things I should be doing as well. I'm still debating on whether to go out there or not. Decisions, decisions....

 

Tomorrow night will be PACKED, they're running a two for the price of one admission special. I have season passes so I can go anytime. Tonight would be the lesser of two evils to capture some awesome fireworks on cam.

I just finished watching one of the local displays... they fire it off at a Jr Hi school / park complex about a klick away from my house. We avoid the crowds and just watch from lawn chairs in the back yard. Tomorrow night there's another one about 4 miles away from here. We can see that one from the roof of the studio. The close one is shot off on the 3rd, and the other one goes off on the 4th... every year, regardless of the day of the week those days fall on.

 

The local kids start blasting away about a week prior to the 4th, and keep it up for about a week afterwards.

I took some shots of the display tonight with the digi cam... :mad: My memory card maxed out right at the time the finale began. I was trying to get some of the "not so good" pics deleted to free up the space just as the incredible display began.... wasn't quick enough to catch the BIG BANG...

 

I don't know if I'll go out tomorrow night or not; tonight was a bear with traffic.
