So, when are the fireworks in your part of the country? The great thing about living in a major metro area with lots of towns and neighborhoods is that there are always plenty of opportunities to see fireworks on the holiday. The fireworks in our village are visible from our front yard. As long as it doesn’t rain Monday night, we’re all set.
When we lived in Anchorage, the whole summer fireworks things was a bit weird. It doesn’t get dark there this time of year, but people’s patience generally runs out about midnight. It does get kind of twilight-ish between 1 and 3 in the morning, but no one wants to wait quite that long. Attempting to see fireworks when it’s not really even dusk is an interesting experience.
But speaking of fireworks and Independence Day, we did see Hamilton when we were in Chicago for ALA. And wow! Even with a slightly obstructed view it was still marvelous and I’m so glad we went. I’d love to see it again, but the ticket prices have become even more obscene than they were just a few months ago. Hopefully, one of these days a film of the play will be available through Fathom Events at the movies.
