There was a pretty good fireworks show downtown last night. The Fourth of July is always a big deal around here – rednecks just love the chance to buy fireworks from the tent stands that pop up all over the state the last two weeks of June. I know guys who save up all year just waiting for the chance to buy fireworks and stock up.

The city always has a free concert on the riverbank for several hours with the Nashville Symphony and a handful of B Circuit singers to entertain the crowd that gathers for the free fireworks show at dark. It’s an expensive treat for the city to be spending money on in this bad economy, but it is a tradition and we southerners are pretty big on keeping our traditions going every year.
