Go Fourth..er…Forth and Celebrate
The little community in the redwoods is full of down-home charm. A fundraiser to benefit the Kiwanis offers pulled pork sandwiches in case the potluck isn’t enough. The elementary school offers a giant box of fireworks as a raffle prize. A bean bag toss game is set up outside a shop.
Many folks pull out their red, white and blues to strut their stuff.
A marble hunt and a kid zone are just two of the options to keep small ones from bugging their folks to know when the real attraction will begin.
After the first few sparklers, then the fireworks get set off. The earliest ones are tentatively set alight beside the road. But later, the yellow line through the middle of town is lined with the carcasses of exploded fireworks.
The rockets red glare and bombs bursting through air have real meaning after an hour of continuous colorful explosions.
After hugs good-night to some of our good friends, we drive away watching the fireworks in our rearview window.
Whether you celebrated in a large city or alone on a beach, we’d love to see your photos capturing the 4th of July.
