Living in samll town with a population of 1500 in the foothills of Northern California has its advantages on the 4th of July, the whole town turns out for the celebration. They start the day with a parade down main street, both blocks of it, and then close it down to traffic and it becomes a mini fair. Latter in the day they have the compititions, baked goods, canned fruits, water melon eating, and the egg toss...one of my favorites.

The first time I attended the 4th here I was invited to participate in the egg tossing event, I was told that the object was to start off at a distance of a couple of yards and start tossing a "hard boiled" egg back and forth with your partner and begin to move farther a part until someone misses the catch. Well...the egg was raw, and the yolk was on me.

I should mention that with the street closed down, people are allowed to purchase beer and carry it around the contained area, and by the time that these games begin there always those that are feeling little if any pain, and this always adds to the mix. Take the couple last year that the boy friend decided to throw the egg at his girl friend rather than toss it to her, after getting over the shock of the unprovoked attack she immediately armed herself with several eggs and the chase was on. Evidently the beer robbed him of his good senses.

There are BBQ partys and fire works to top off the day, and the town usually doesn't start moving until ten or eleven the next morning.

I hope all of you here have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July. :thumbsup:

I will be in the Cumberland Gap area in Tennessee. Our church supports a family in that area and will be delivering/building a workshed. So we work and then camp for a couple. Back home on the 4th to party.

Happy Birthday America!

I am going to walk about 50 yards to the carnival here in town. Which is conviniently located across from me in the park. :thumbsup: And since the fireworks are launched from the park I get first row seats. :flowers:

The normally sleepy little town brings in up to 50,000 spectators to view the Parade and Fireworks, as well as a week long carnival with entertainment provided by the Newton Falls Fourth of July Festivities Committee which is made up entirely of volunteers. The committee raises money for the fireworks through a Car Show, Bike Show, and 20,000 Dollar Raffle.


For a small sleepy town, 50,000 is a lot! (We only have 5,002 people in the city plus the township which is about 4,000)

Also what is cool, is the car show and bike show are all within 3 weeks of the 4th of July.
