It’s practically un-American not to watch a fireworks display or set off a show of your own on the Fourth of July. Even our second president, John Adams, recommended that the Fourth of July be “celebrated by succeeding generations ... with pomp and parade,... bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time on and forever more.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Mr. President.
There’s no finer way to enjoy a fireworks show with friends and family than from the comfort of your deck or stone patio.
At Lumbermen’s and Fireplace and Stone Center, we plan to enjoy this Fourth of July by safely setting off fireworks in our neighborhoods or checking out some of the fantastic fireworks shows.
