Last year we had several friends over for drinks and appetizers, went to watch the Doo Dah parade, came back for a cook-out, then went to see the fireworks. It was great fun but also a lot of planning and work.
So this year we kept it simple. Our buddies Steven & Thad came over for a snack, we watched the Doo Dah parade, we had a cook-in, and skipped the local fireworks. Instead, we watched them on TV from the comfort of our home.
