We usually don't go to town for the adult parade, it goes from about 11 AM to at least 7 or 8 PM - a long hot day in the sun. We usually watch it on TV - very old of us, LOL! But we also may go to the beach, or I might do the gardening I have planned.
Some years we have a fireworks party, but DH is heading off island next week so we're getting organized for that (as in pre-paying his bills, packing, etc) and neither of us felt like partying. So we're having a burger barbeque for two - lean beef with sliced tomatoes on whole wheat buns, salt-free potato chips, and maybe a cookie for dessert. That was the compromise between DH's tastes and my choice of a healthier meal plan.
I have to admit, fireworks are one of my favorite-ever things! Right up there with dark chocolate and little baby kittens and DH (not in that order, LOL)!!!
