Have a Happy and Safe Fourth of
The Bay Area was downright eerie last week, with
all the smoke from area wildfires choking the air. With the Big
Holiday looming this weekend, I can only hope that people will
practice safe fireworks to keep the threat of wildfires at a minimum.
Luckily, there should be plenty of large (and safe) fireworks displays
here in the Bay Area to enjoy, from Discovery Kingdom to the SF
Marina. I will be celebrating with my family up in Tahoe, catching the
fireworks over the lake up there.
If you are staying close to
home this weekend, here are some ideas for a Fabulous Fourth. Or,
visit our July calendar online at BayAreaParent.com
for more ideas. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
