Fourth of July fireworks.

Once again this year, our neighbors a few streets over from us shot off a bunch of Fourth of July fireworks which we got to enjoy by just looking out of third-floor bedroom window…

We decided to call this their grand finale even though we could still hear fireworks going off around our house until well after midnight…

I think it’s really neat when you don’t even have to leave your house to watch a pretty impressive display of Fourth of July fireworks. 😀🎆❤️

Happy Fourth of July.

Happy Independence Day, everybody! We hope you have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July and get to see some fireworks too. 😀🇺🇸❤️

ps. Here’s some Fourth of July trivia from the Smithsonian.

Fourth of July.

Today was the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade. Last year, we skipped the parade because it was raining. And we were trying to get situated after just moving into our house. The weather this year wasmaybe a little on the warm side but pretty perfect. The parade was scheduled to step off from way up Hamilton Avenue at noon. So we walked down Pullan Avenue to try to stake out a spot streetside about fifteen minutes beforehand…

While we stood there waiting for our first glimpse of the parade, more and more people continued to line the sides of the street…

There was still no sign of the parade coming down the hill as we continued to bake in the hot noon sun…

So we started walking down Hamilton Avenue towards Hoffner Park…

Instead of standing with the masses, we walked down to Chase Avenue and proceeded over Northside Yacht Club. NSYC was having a Fourth of July USA beer & burger party with a Rhinegeist tap takeover

Genifer had the Burrito Mexican Lager. I had the Maracuja Gose with Passionfruit. And we shared in the legendary NSYC Burger awesomeness…

That was a really great burger! Afterwards, we walked over to Urban Artifact

And then we stopped back through Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival for a little bit…

When we got home, we ordered a delicious NYPD Stationhouse pizza…

When we got upstairs, we could hear fireworks all around us but we couldn’t see any…

But then we started to see some from our bedroom window…

We had a great Fourth of July enjoying all things Northside. Maybe we’ll watch the parade next year. 😀🍔🍺🍻🎸🍕🇺🇸

One year ago today…

We watched a pretty spectacular fireworks display right from our front lawn…

I hope we get to see some more fireworks tonight! 😀🎇🎆❤️🇺🇸

Happy Fourth of July.

Fourth of July fireworks.

People a couple streets over from us were setting off fireworks most of the evening. Like really legit fireworks. It was pretty much a full blown Rozzi’s Reds Friday Night Fireworks display just spread out over a much longer amount of time. I think they were shooting off fireworks for around two hours. We enjoyed the show right from the comfort of our front porch…

And then they set off their grand finale

Very impressive. Afterwards our street was filled with smoke…

It was a pretty spectacular end to an amazing first weekend in Northside. 🙂

Seen and noted.
