Sadly, last year there were no fireworks in San Antonio, at least not the big shows sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. That’s because the surrounding land was just too dry to risk a spark flying off from the rockets. But this year, the fireworks are roaring back… provided it doesn’t get too much hotter! The plan is for a huge celebration to take place at the Woodlawn Lake where the San Antonio Parks Foundation will present their water reflected fireworks display. This is a truly unique experience that promises to be fun for the whole family.
According to the San Antonio Fire Department, the recent rainfall makes conditions a bit more agreeable for fireworks but that doesn’t mean we’re completely out of the woods. A sharp increase in the temperature could result in drying up the area and forcing another cancellation. Could you still celebrate the 4th of July without fireworks? Absolutely. But for that to happen you need to refocus your efforts on your own backyard. That’s where you can gather your friends and family for a good old fashion summer cookout.
One of the fun things about a cookout is that you probably won’t have any trouble getting the men to do most of the cooking. Naturally that “cooking” really means grilling. At any backyard barbeque you won’t have to look far for the husbands and dads. They’ll all be gathered around the grill discussing the merits of what makes the best BBQ. As for the kids, all they need for backyard fun is a sprinkler and a waterslide and they’re good to go. In fact, with the hot July temperatures it might be hard keeping some of those grown-ups off that water slide.
To get your backyard ready for this kind of fun celebration you’ll going to have to do a bit of safety proofing. Essentially this will mean inspecting every corner of your yard for any hazardous junk. Don’t forget if you have kids playing here than anything that isn’t nailed down can become a trap! Piles of lumber, chunks of concrete, busted planters or rusted kitchen appliances will all become fair game as those young ones explore and imagine. You can clear all that junk out in one afternoon by hiring a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King San Antonio.
The professional junk hauling team from Junk King will arrive at your home for a scheduled appointment. They’ll be working on your schedule not the other way around. If you need to be there to supervise they can show up after work hours or on the weekend. You could even pile up what you want taken away in your driveway. Attach a note saying, “All this junk goes!” and the pros will do the rest! Make sure your 4th of July and rest of the summer will be a safe one with a clean backyard.
