I think the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. First, I love summer foods. Fresh and grilled veggies, fruit salads, potato salads, BBQ’s, watermelon, and s’mores just to name a few. Yum! I am currently eating my way through my MIL’s left over potato salad. It’s my favorite. I love getting together with friends and/or family and I love the fireworks and the feeling you get while watching them.
This 4th my hubby and I both had to work a day shift which was totally perfect because then we had our evening free. For the first time in 20 years the city of Superior had their 4th of July celebration down Barkers Island water front. They had a small carnival for kids, a car show, vendors and bands playing right up until the fireworks.
Of course in true Northern Wisconsin fashion it was 57 degrees. My in laws came over and we had a delish summer meal and since we only live 5 blocks from Barkers Island it was an easy walk down to enjoy the festivities. We arrived just as the last band for the night, Aftershock was beginning to play. They were great! We will definitely be hunting down where and when their shows are. My kid danced the night away and had a blast. One of the lead singers even came down and danced and sang with my him. It was such a great time!
The fireworks were AMAZING! Perfect length and really beautiful. It was so relaxing to sit near the lake bundled under blankets (note a small tone of sarcasm) and watch the fireworks surrounded by my fellow Superians.
Superior you did an amazing job with the 4th of July celebration this year. I can’t wait to see what you have planned for next year! I love my city!
