Independence Day – America’s Birthday! I enjoy watching fireworks just as much as the next guy, but after seeing (and hearing!) so many of them in the days leading up to Independence Day…I dunno…they seem to lose just a bit of the excitement. Nevertheless, I will be watching the skies tonight, as I’m sure you all will! You can learn more about the history, types, and use of fireworks at this Wikipedia entry. In the meantime, if you’re wondering what city services and offices are open today, check out this list. And if you want to do more than just watch the fireworks, the City has some fun on tap for you!
