    I have no plans for that specific day. However, I do plan on attending the local fireworks show, in the city I live in, and then plan on attending the fireworks show in the larger city closest to my home.

    I live in Chicopee, Mass, which is only a few minutes away from Springfield, Mass, where the larger show will be. smile

      Our 4th is always celebrate the Saturday before the 4th. Our community has street dancing, bands, and activities the whole day. Then the fireworks that night. I am not much for the loud noises the fireworks are so I will probably stay home, swim my pool and my husband goes with the local Boy scout troop for the week of summer camp to be a adult volunteer.

    We're still undecided. I want to float the river and camp, and my husband wants to stay home and cook out. I see a cook out in our future.

    The Fourth of the July is my favorite holiday so I just had to reply to this question with a smile. 

    Having grown up in NYC I was lucky enough to see the Macy's firework displays from different sides of the City on numerous occasions...it was AMAZING!

    Now that I live in a rural New England town my kids and I enjoy the local town firework display from a blanket on a baseball field. We usually Q (thanks habee smile) in the day and head to town in the evening.  It is still my favorite holiday no matter where I am.

    Happy Forth of July!

    As 4th July is basically "Thank God we got rid of the British" Day, we don't celebrate it in England smile

    As a Brit I had no interest until I had a major road accident on the 4th July that killed my buddy, crippled a girl for life and smashed my legs, face and hands.

    I normally celebrate being alive, remember the guy who did not make it and telephone the girl for a chat.
