Every year a small, nearby municipality has a fireworks display.  It is usually on a day other than the fourth so it doesn't compete with larger celebrations. For a small village, they put on a bang up show.  We found a grassy hillside perch just off a grocery store parking lot where every year we toss a blanket and enjoy the show.  The dog and cat stay home, but I couldn't resist imagining their delight if the show were silent.

Have a safe and fun Fourth of July.
