How do you celebrate July 4th?
 
How do you celebrate, family cookout, go to the lake, take in a local city display?

We run a firework stand and make a little extra money for a vacation or road trip to see relatives. After the 4th we have a big family and friends cookout with shooting leftover fireworks.

Does anyone have any crazy July 4th stories? Explosives and rednecks make a great combination and sometimes get posted to YouTube!

Once we had a bottle rocket fight with my cousin's son and his friends against me and my cousin. They grabbed the wrong bottle rockets, 3 whistle, they pause 3 times before exploding. Not so great trying to shoot across a pond at your foe! We told them we would give them some regular BR but we won't quit shooting at them, they never came across! Lol, good times!

People play pranks on each other by lighting firecrackers under their buddies bedroom window late at night. They lay a lit cigarette on the fuse to give a time delayed ignition.

Another buddy would set off fireworks in the middle of town using the cigarette to delay the light off so he could getaway without the cops noticing.

I was in Fort Smith one year for it and we dropped near 2500 in fireworks. Had 16,000 black cats and good lord knows what else. Needless to say, our show beat the city's. I'll try and find some videos when I get home from work

In the morning, I plan to read the "Declaration of Independence" and the "Bill of Rights".
(It's an annual thing for me).

Then have some friends over to burn hamburgers on the grill.
