We celebrated the 4th of July with a small town feel in Dripping Springs, TX. We were in the Sportsplex early at 6:30 pm because the church has a publicity tent where Al joined the facepainting team. (More on facepainting tomorrow!)
Anyway, here is the video I caught of the firework's last stretch:
That was the end of the $11,000-worth of fireworks!!! Not too bad for small-town Dripping Springs, huh?
We actually really liked the small-town feel of the celebration though. The Sportsplex had plenty of space for all the people who came. We were seated on our camp chairs and the fireworks were just above us! No jostling for position to see the fireworks.
The only thing I missed was that there was no interesting architecture to get fireworks pictures or silhouette with.
We met a couple of folks who were actually from Austin or the other nearby cities like Wimberly and Johnson City. For the Austin folks, it was a good alternative to the traffic galore of downtown Austin's celebration. For the visitors from other nearby cities, their own cities did not have the fireworks celebration.
How about you? How did you celebrate the 4th?
