Do you have your own fireworks show or do you go to a fireworks show on 4th of July?
When I was around 9 years old, my two older brothers decided it would be a good idea to set off some fireworks in a barn at a campground we regularly went to. Turns out old dried up wood and fireworks don't mix well. They ended up burning it down and getting us banned from there for about 5 years. It kinda sucked too, because my grandparents retired there.
It's not that I don't enjoy setting off fireworks, I'd rather just watch. The local casino normally puts on a really good show. I'll stick to sparklers and snakes.read more collapse
Since personal fireworks are banned again due to drought conditions, public shows are the only option. With what seems like half the country on fire right now, I think a lot of places will be banning them this year. Summer before last I had a screen porch built on the back of my house and a deck on top of it. As I am well up on the slope of the mountain, the deck affords me a good view of fireworks from downtown, Chamizal National Park and Juarez. On New Years we light up the fire pit and roast marshmallows and drink champagne on deck while watching the fireworks. For 4th of July I expect it will be beers and watermelon on deck. The only downside is you can't hear the shriek of the rockets or the booms of the explosions.read more collapse
