Fireworks are a tradition here and the show will go on, rain or not! (Of course, any rain we get will be widely scattered and probably wouldn’t interfere with the fireworks show anyway!) The 36th Army Band from Ft. We-Gotchya will play the 1812 Overture, and the fireworks commence as the last notes fade away.
We’ll have firemen from 3 districts standing by just in case.
We always go over to a friend’s place for a cookout, and watch the fireworks from his driveway. He lives just over a quarter-mile from the display grounds.
One year, we went up a hill on the Fort and watched fireworks displays in Sierra Vista, Tombstone, St. David, Bisbee, and Palominas. Now, that was an interesting Fourth!!
All our 4th of July events except for the parade have been canceled.
Now being able to watch the fireworks displays from several cities sounds really neat.
