On with the festivities! With the summer picnics, weddings and various events in full gear, it’s hard to imagine we are already into July. It is that point in the year when things can get fairly busy for some and vacation time for others. It is the start of summer and that brings some great opportunities to spend time with lots of people and celebrate the fourth of July. Around Bozeman the Independence Day experience may include traveling to one of many firework stands to select an assortment of pyrotechnic wonders. Some are more inclined to play with larger firepower, but remember to keep them away form vehicles and other potentially hazardous areas. We like to help with your cars exterior, but you may be looking for a body shop after trouble with a runaway artillery shell. For the less pyrotechnically inclined there are some great activities to keep the company busy whether games on the lawn or watermelon seed spitting. If it is a nice summer day most people are ready to get out and enjoy it.
For those firework show enthusiasts, depending on the part of the valley you’re in, you may enjoy fireworks of your own or going to find the perfect view of the County’s display at the fairgrounds.
Fourth of July is a tradition for many U.S. citizens. We remember those, who gave their lives for our freedom. It is amazing to remember the many ways that our country has been shaped by the courage and sacrifices of others. This special summer celebration is always a great opportunity for remembering the freedom our country offers, holding in honor the convictions of those that sacrificed so much. From the founding of the country, to the Declaration of Independence, until today, there is much history to remember and for which to be thankful. It is a fairly busy holiday with most gathering for bbq’s and fireworks. It is a nice holiday to bring together family and friends for a special remembrance which is one of the freedoms that we enjoy. It is a good thing to continue in the rich tradition of taking time to reflect on the country we live in today while enjoying these many blessings we share.
