It was a fantastic 4th of July here in Savannah.  The weather was beautiful and fireworks spectacular. 

During the holiday weekend there were lots of opportunities for watching the fireworks.  On Friday night (July 3rd) folks headed down to Tybee Island to grab a spot on the beach and watch the display.  There isn’t a bad seat for the show along Tybee’s 3miles of beachfront.  The only set back is the traffic trying to get back off the island!!  

The Savannah Yacht Club also had their annual fireworks on the 3rd and you could see the beautiful presentation on both land and sea.  No need to be a member of the club, you just need to find a good spot to watch.  Boats crowded around the marina to get a good view of the display while floating around the Wilmington River.  Absolutely beautiful with the added bonus of no traffic!! 

But the main event was on River Street on Saturday night.  People came from all over the area to see the fabulous display.  Savannah has one of the largest fireworks show in the southeast and this year’s display didn’t disappoint.  Families were camped out in folding chairs and on picnic blankets with snacks for the kids and radios tuned into a local station playing all American music.  Seeing all the kids dressed in their red, white and blue filled the air with a sense of innocence and pride.  It was a down home display of brotherhood and patriotism that made you proud to be an American and captured the true spirit of the 4th of July.  If you missed it this year you can always join the celebration next year.  We will save a spot on the blanket for you.
