Fireworks!

The 4th of July is nearly upon us and I think this means we should all get together sit outside and watch some fireworks.

The plan is as follows: July 4th, meet at Commons Park (hopefully on the hill, but I'll post how to find us later) if there's little wind we can play card games (CAH, Munchkin, Flux, Killer Bunnies, etc), have a pot luck and wait for the sun to go down.

The more the merrier in my opinion. Let us know if you're bringing something (no glass bottles in the park) and let's celebrate our independence!

    Any idea what time fireworks are starting? I'm going to try and bring Eloise.

      Agreed. Eloise was the best. Too cute!!!

      Thanks for letting us hang out, sadly we missed the train by 30 seconds so we had to ride home on the next one with all the Rockies and Sports Authority crowd, she did great though.

    So Artie and I are here, sitting under a tree with a large black golf umbrella. Katie and Ben should be here soon with the flag.

  • Sam S.

    So, I will be down around 4:30-5:00.

    If anyone has a volleyball net and ball there's room. Also a frisbee!

    Anyone have a popup canopy? I used to until I had it out in a bad storm one day...doh!

    I actually own a portable grill, two in fact (2nd one is just burners). I'll bring them both with some meats to toss on the grill. If anyone brings something that needs heating up they can toss it on the burner one.

      Fair warning I don't have pots for the burner grill so if you are heating up something...say beans or something.. bring a pot! :)

    Is anyone bringing a cooler or three? I have no cooler. But I want to bring some sodas that I'll actually drink (yeah, I'm picky, sorry).

    July 4, 2013

  • Shelley D.

    What (foodwise) still needs to be brought?

    July 3, 2013

    • Charles J.

      I'll make it as American as possible and bring PBR!

      July 3, 2013

    • Artessia W.

      Will be bringing some bottles of water

    I'm new to the area, what's the best way to get there from Lakewood? Should I drive or try and take the rail?

      I'm going to try the light rail, growing up in Topeka I've learned to distrust public transportation. Hopefully I'll find my way there.

      July 3, 2013

    • Shelley D.

      The light rail is actually really good. I took it for the first time last week and it was fantastic. On time and I had ZERO problems. I'm planning on taking it tomorrow as well.

      July 3, 2013

    Last update. I'm bringing a Jolly Rodger (Pirate Flag) to mark our spot. I'll have water and a few drinks as well as some delicious things to eat, can't guarantee they will be there when you get there though, especially if you come later. See you guys there!

    Going to Bandimere to see the drag race and fireworks. Enjoy yourselves!

    Updated plan. Ben and I will get there shortly after 1 (probably closer to 2) to hold down the fort. Come anytime after that and join us!

    July 1, 2013

    • Sam S.

      That sounds smart. I was thinking I would head down after work so I could get parking at Auraria.

      July 1, 2013

  • Brian K

    Change of plans. Going to rapids game. =-)

    July 1, 2013

  • Sam S.

    Crescent park or Confluence park may be good ideas to have as back up meeting places in case. Also this side of town is going to be hard to find parking with the Outlaws and Rockies both playing on the 4th.

    June 25, 2013

    • Katie

      Normally I do too, but it's been a while since I've seen fireworks and I have a craving! On the plus side, because of the rockies and outlaws, more firework shows for us!

      June 25, 2013

    • Shelley D.

      I'm certain parking will be a nightmare. I think the light rail is the best option. The park isn't too terribly far a walk from the Union Station rail stop.

      June 26, 2013

    Okay, I'm bringing some Cherry Pie, a kickball for making ice cream (for the pie of course), Goats cheese caprese salad cups.

    June 26, 2013

    • Joe E.

      I just looked up Ice cream kickball. Mind = Blown.

      June 26, 2013

    • Katie

      I haven't ever used it, and I need to find it (I think I know where it is) but it's worth a shot. Anything for ice cream!

    Downtown Denver is going to be crazy and busy on the 4th of July. Commons park will mostly likely be very packed especially that late in the day on the 4th.

    June 25, 2013

    • Katie

      I plan on being there earlier to hold a spot

      June 25, 2013

  • Ben A.

    Don't forget to post what you will bring please!

    June 25, 2013

  • Sam

    Fireworks at 12:00 pm? Katie you might want to change the time.

    June 25, 2013

    • Ben A.

      6pm I think is what it should be... Katie can chime in.

      June 25, 2013

    • Katie

      It originally wouldn't let me set a date/time that far ahead... better now

      June 25, 2013

  • Ben A. changed the time from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM

    June 25, 2013

  • Artessia Washington changed the date and time to Thursday, July 04, 2013 at 12:00 PM
