Do you celebrate the 4th of July? Why or why not? Does your town go all out with parades and fireworks shows?

What is your most memorably experience (good or bad)

Had to think this over. We do like seeing the fireworks. People here cannot set off fireworks because living in the desert it is way to dangerous and could cause a fire. They do have fireworks set off by the city on the 4th.
My family used to have a big celebration on the 4th. All the relatives there and have a big cook out. Watch the fireworks at night and then come back and enjoy ice cold watermelon. We no longer live close to the extended family but I do have lots of fond memories of all those good times on the 4th.
