Celebrate the 4th of July

Just wondering if anyone else would like to get together for a picnic and fireworks the night of the 4th? We could make this kids friendly too. Maybe a picnic around 6 or 7ish and then head to one of the then fireworks at the nearest town? Or Lakewood park would be fun, but I'm sure we'd have to meet earlier...or go to dinner then to fireworks? Any thoughts?

    Hi all, We're meeting around 5:00 in front of the playground entrance, facing the parking lot. Everyone can just bring their own snacks, drinks, and or food. Some are stopping at Subway to pick up sandwiches. Since the fireworks don't start until 9:45 feel free to bring cards, games etc.! Be sure to bring a blanket or chair! And dress warm as it will be a cool 4th! :-)

    No doubt will be a wonderful sight to see ... but committed to family gathering and watching fireworks with grandchildren. Another time I hope?

    If there are only a few of us meeting, I am not sure a potluck/picnic is necessary. We can just meet after dinner and play cards / games / chat until sundown. Just a suggestion :)

      I tried earlier to say that this was a great idea, and my post wouldn't take.

    I rechecked my schedule and could probably get there by 5:00. Is that too late Heather? I'd be happy to bring a salad. Should we BYOB?

    There apparently are 20,000 folks expected at Lakewood Park for fireworks, so I suggest meeting for a picnic late afternoon, and then there is a walking trail/promenade along the Lake. Also, live music if I am not mistaken. Very kid-friendly place...big playground area! Thank you, Nancy, for the wonderful idea! :)

      I have been to this before. Fireworks don't start until 9:45. And though the park is busy, most people seem to show up from 7:00 on for the fireworks. I'm not able to get there until 6:00, but can meet you there if others get there earlier. :-) And, yes...there is a wonderful walking trail in the park and down to the water, though they might have the water area closed since the fireworks are shot off near there. And yes, Great playground for the kids, volley ball area too. :-) A picnic would be fun!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
