Independence Eve Blast: the Tradition
This year marks the 7th time we've done this, and it's always something folks look forward to. Most people also have the 4th of July off from work too, so it's usually one of our events that nearly everyone can come to! This year is also likely to be the most "explosive" since Fireworks are now able to be legally sold at local stores for a limited time. Because they're even MORE available and easy to get ahold of, I'm expecting this Tuesday's event to be very... explody. Obviously, for safety reasons, we don't use fireworks in our actual games. They're just going off overhead, as utilizing explosives and such during a game like this would be dangerous. We've thought of using smoke bombs, but with the dry and hot conditions we've had, I don't want any fires getting started from a smoke bomb in some dry grass. Safety first, kids!
Either way, celebrating this country's Independence has always been one of my favorite holidays in general. Ever since we started this tagging tradition 7 years ago, it's been even more fun! I also may have a bit of a surprise come July 3rd too, so keep it here for that!
