So this Fourth of July is definitely going to be different from any in the past. On the heels of the governor’s tightening restriction, many traditional parades, festivals and celebrations won’t take place.
But why not take this passel of lemons and make a pitcher of lemonade? Here are some reasons why this change of plans might not be all that bad.
- It means that instead of sweating in the evening heat to watch fireworks, you can settle back in your favorite chair and watch the various fireworks displays on your big screen or tablet. Here are a couple of events that are offering stay-at-home viewing:
- You’ll be available to your best friend. Even though the mega-fireworks won’t be firing up, there are likely to be individuals celebrating in the surrounding neighborhoods. The results will be sounds that might scare your pet. The Fourth of July is one of the worst nights of the year for animals escaping and getting lost.
- You can enjoy adult beverages and not worry about driving home.
Have a safe and healthy Fourth of July.
