The Hubby and I usually visit a local fireworks display, although every year I wish the municipalities would consider silent fireworks.
Fireworks also are very polluting; the chemicals used, the smoke that fills the air, and I'm sure the folks who light the wicks don't escape the process unscathed.
In addition, although we've enjoyed a vegetable-based diet for many years, there is one fascinating July 4th contest held every year that we've watched on television:
The Famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest!

This year, the event will be held indoors.
Trust me, it's ain't pretty, and you may not be able to watch the 100% contest without wanted to heave your own cookies, but in a weird, fascinating way, the contestants make it a worthwhile competition!
