Everyone at The Blonde & The Brunette loves loves loves fireworks and nothing celebrates the 4th better than an over-the-top pyrotechnics display. Two of the best in the country are located in our LA backyard at the Rose Bowl, or this year with Barry Manilow at The Hollywood Bowl. Why not try and go? There might just be some last minute tickets available. Elsewhere in the major metro areas, don’t forget the great show at the Navy Pier in Chicago and the spectacular Macy’s Fireworks on the Hudson River in New York City. Then, of course, there is the classic Boston Pops in (where else?) Boston.
If you are in the very dry Western States, fireworks, fires and smoking have been banned. The awful devastation from the Colorado Springs fires was due to one careless cigarette. Hundreds lost their homes along with the wildlife. You can help through the American Red Cross and the Larimer Humane Society. Please do.
Wherever you are, we hope the night sky lights up for you. Don’t forget to make a wish because we live in country that celebrates independence in mind and spirit making all things possible. There we go getting sappy again. Happy 4th!
