  1. Is anyone else upset about the scheduling of the fireworks and parade? For the last five years, I've hosted so many people for the 4th, a whole day of fun. We meet for the parade, walk to the park, listen to music, then head home for a cookout and fireworks I've had people tell me it's the greatest 4th they've ever had. Splitting it up makes no sense and it makes it difficult to invite people from out of town.

  2. Did anyone go to the independence day celebration in tower park? I entered the park by the VA by the basketball courts and started to walk towards where they usually have the rides by the armory and noticed there were no rides or sign of the festival that I once knew where there were once boothes covering the whole park. Finally I arrived at the festival that was surprisingly smaller than the years before. No kidding there were like 5 boothes no rides and a few other things. seriously this festival gets smaller every year and with the greys (@spelling) being retied now i think the festival will die. its sad but it might and looks like it will happen. also it was dumb to have it on different days
