We usually get to watch fireworks in the neighborhood as they're usually being shot all around us, but this year we are in "extreme drought" (on the news, they showed 4 bands, the lightest being unusually dry and the heaviest being extreme drought...driest Jan to June on record--at least 75 years, and basically all the areas that were affected by Katrina). We are on burn ban, and I'm thinking we'll probably be on fireworks ban, too.

I don't know if the closest display will be allowed to have them either.

Otherwise, we are planning to stay home and probably do some BBQ. Maybe go to a local celebration. Don't know if they are doing the parade in town this year...they didn't last year, but had the 2 prior years. Guess it just wasn't as big as Mardi Gras & Christmas.
