While skimming through the news this week, I ran across an interesting article about communities that are cutting back on, or canceling, their 4th of July fireworks displays due to budget cuts. In general, residents have been on board with such decisions, though some are understandably disappointed.
In some cases, corporate sponsors have stepped in to save the day, but in other cases people will either go without, or they’ll have to drive to neighboring communities to get their fireworks fix.
What about in your neck of the woods? Has your local fireworks show been affected by the economic slowdown? To be honest, I’m not sure what’s happening in our area, as we’re currently on the road and won’t be back until after all of the festivities.
Either way, I hope you have a fantastic (and safe) 4th of July!
