Day 241 – 07/04/11 – The Fourth

Happy Fourth of July everybody! We’ve been building up the last few days to our annual fireworks festivities, and at the last minute it looked like we’d be rained out.  Luckily the rain cleared late in the afternoon and we ended up with a nice evening for our festivities.

Though we had quite a few that we lit off, the finale was this gargantuan beer mug shaped monstrosity.  We took a chance on it this year, and had no idea how it would turn out.  It shot sparks and smoke and firecrackers into the air for a solid two minutes!  Definitely one that will go into the repertoire again next year!

Another new addition to the lineup this year were these soda pop bottles.  They were quite a hit, and will also go onto the list of repeat purchases for next year.

  1. Great captures Jim!

  2. I love how in the soda bottle image it looks like the flames are jumping back into the bottle! Was the big one doing her magic again? 😉
