Happy Fourth of July

     Key West is like most every other city n America on the Fourth of July,in that we have a grand fireworks display, flags and banners, and parades.     This is the one time of the year wen we are a bit more "conventional" in how we celebrate.       Some people get up early and run the 5 mile race called "Run Like a Conch", while others join the "Historic Seaport Bar Stroll".     In the evening all are involved in the fireworks display in some way or another.     Some take their own boats out on the south side of the island, while others sit on the beaches or in the beach bars where they will all will be able to see the fireworks.     Still others will get on some of the charter cruise boats and party on from sunset til the wee hours of the morning and the boats get back to the harbor.    No matter how the celebration is conducted, it is a celebration of America's Birthday and we are proud to be a part of this country and the party that celebrates it.     ;o)
