Fourth of July is probably one of my favorite holidays! In the middle of the summer getting a day to spend with family and friends in the summer sun. Plus, there is just something that still amazes me that the sky lights up – and most of the shows are FREE. (There are some really great paid ones like the ones at the Colorado Rockies Game, Colorado Rapids and Elitch Gardens). Plus, who doesn’t like a good hot dog. Hot Dog eating contest anyone?
