Do It Yourself Firework Display!
For all you mothers and fathers out there don't judge to quickly as to why I put this as number one on the list. Unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of local events on July 4th in or around the Laramie area but one thing residents of Laramie have the benefit of is that it's legal to shoot fireworks off outside city limits! What could be more exciting then lighting off some fireworks with family and friends! Just a few words of advice though, BE CAREFUL! Laramie is a high plains desert and is not known for lush vegetation. So, if you plan on stocking up on a bounty of things that boom, bang, sizzle, or pop then make sure you are prepared with the necessary equipment. Fires are easier to start than some may think and if you are outside city limits that means that water may not be readily available. Anyways, enough of the safety talk, just be a safe and responsible member of society. I stand firm on my pick for number one because really what else could beat a night of fun with your friends shooting off cheap fireworks and celebrating the birth of our great country!
