Fireworks, BBQ’s, Slip-n-Slides, and lots of sunblock are on most of our minds this week.  With the 4th sneaking up on us,  you may be starting to plan your family festivities.  The temperatures are high and most of us are wanting to stay cool and inside…but if you are feeling adventurous and ready for some fun- then check out the list of some local parties going on around town. All are family friendly, so put on some “red, white and blue” and enjoy Independence Day with your family and friends!
