“It should be held at the lake so the fireworks reflect off the lake.”

On the north side of the river because of ease of people from town seeing it. It is not big enough to do it at Clinton and people will have to find places to park if they do that anyway which is not an easy problem to solve. Is this hinging on a debate to move them to someplace else?

Ban 'em. I blow up stuff all day, I need a break.

Since the parking and show last year were planned to resemble a Chinese fire drill, mission accomplished! If the lake plan was in store for us this year, the riots would be commencing. A downtown show will keep the riff-raff from west Lawrence away.

Is it summer already?

At least the Brits didn't cue the clip with Lee Greenwood's "...and I'm proud to be and American..."

Talking about fireworks? With the Memorial Day weekend upon us, the first three day weekend of the season, here is something for xbusguy, TOB and Prospector. I helps to get one in the mood.

a little Taj in the morning always helps.

In my living room, right between the stripper poles.

The fourth of July celebrations in my neighborhood tend to be traditionalist in nature. Hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs..and all that goes with that. Anywhere from 30 to 50 people, lots of kids. Occasional incoming fire. Then when the city display is on, we set all the chairs in the street towards the park and enjoy. They play the accompanying music on the local radio station that is supposed to be insync with the display. It is usually pretty decent.

Will you guys also have a food-a-thon available to your yard guests?

I'm with Roed, my front yard would be a cool place.
