4th of July BBQ potluck and Fireworks display

Let's get together for a great relaxing BBQ dinner and hang out. I have a great view of the mountains directly east of Monument. The annual fireworks show (formerly in Palmer Lake) is going to go off from Monument Lake and I should have a great view from my deck. Fireworks start around 9pm - 9:30pm, you all can hang at my house for the display or if you want to try to get in closer to Monument Lake you are welcome to head over there.

For the potluck, you can bring anything you fancy, I will have some proteins, hamburgers, hotdogs. So some suggestions are drinks, side dishes, desserts, vegetarian/vegan dishes (I can have a separate grilling pan), ice. I'll probably think of more stuff. If you put in the comments what you're bringing, we'll all have a good idea of what else we might need.

Also, please feel welcome to bring spouses and significant others!

    Thank you Lovely Ladies, for making the 4th so special for me! Janet thanks for taking the pics, and a few fireworks too, since we couldn't see any from up here. Food was delish and company was delightful!

      The fireworks moved to Monument Lake this year, and my deck is prime viewing, yay!. BUT due to stage 1 fire restrictions, Monument cancelled the fireworks show :(

    Hi ladies! Addressing the question about bringing kids, while I have no objection to having kids around, I am concerned that they would be bored and you may want to bring some sort of activity to keep them entertained. Also with several of you bringing kids, I would think as a group they can think of stuff to keep them amused :) Please update your RSVP number if you are bringing kids and/or partners/friends, I want to be sure we prepare / bring plenty of yummy eats for everyone. Thanks all!

    I'm a maybe... I'm having minor surgery earlier that week & my doc doesn't want me driving or raising my arms for a week to 2 weeks.... However I LOVE 4th of July & have been looking so forward to your party, so I'm going to do my best to make it.

    June 25, 2013

    • Annette H.

      Aww, Rev, I hope you can make it! Anybody coming from Black Forest or east of there? Maybe they could swing by and pick you up?

      That would be amazing... Can they also comb my hair & put my shirt on lol. Only joking! It's an underarm surgery so I'm limited on arm/shoulder movement. I'm going to try to come. If I do make it, I won't be able to bring what I was originally going to bring. I'll make a potato bake dish that I can freeze & warm up that day & hopefully some cookies... OR a quick stop at Safeway that day.

    I just confirmed with the Town of Monument, that the fireworks are cancelled due to Stage 1 Fire restrictions :(

    The BBQ will go on as planned, yummy food, and great company!

    I understand if you want to change your plans to get in some fireworks. I think SkySox has a display, as well as Colorado Springs Memorial park. Please update your rsvp, if necessary.
