American FlagFor me, nothing says “summer” quite like 4th of July celebrations.  A day spent on the beach; an evening spent watching the sky light up with beautiful colors as we celebrate our Nations Birthday.  The booms, the oohs and ahhs of the crowd, the flags waving . . .

We've got a few places to watch fireworks this weekend; Southport and Downtown Wilmington just to name two.  Be sure to check out the tips for parking in Downtown Wilmington, the last thing you want is to spend all your time trying to find a place to park instead of enjoying the celebration! 

Mayfaire Music on the Town is still on as well!

Tonight it’s funk, rock and soul by Millenia Funk’n Band!  Bring your chairs, blankets and coolers!  Kids will enjoy the three bounce houses, cotton candy and snow cones. 6p ~ 9p. Mayfaire Town Center

I hope that wherever you celebrate this weekend you remember that Independence Day is so much more than cook-outs and fireworks.  It is a celebration of the Birth of our Great Nation, a Nation founded on the blood, sweat and tears of many.  Protected by the honor of hundreds of thousands more.  As you fly your flag, remember, it's more than just a piece of cloth -- 

I am your title deed of freedom, which is yours to enjoy and hold in trust for posterity.  Ruth Apperson

 May you and yours have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day!
