Every year since I moved into this house, I’ve had a little get together on our deck to celebrate Independence Day. Drinks, food, and then walk over to the fireworks on the west side of town. Yes the fireworks are on the 3rd – don’t ask me why, maybe it’s because it’s cheaper, maybe so as not to compete with Philly’s display, regardless they are on the 3rd, and this year they may not happen at all.
In these trying economic times…
Conshohocken can’t afford fireworks this year. There is a fundraising effort underway to bring the fireworks back. If you’ve been past my house before for the party, consider donating a couple of dollars to the effort. This weekend there will be a Pig Roast Fundraiser to save the Conshohocken fireworks.
