  1. My favorite 4th of July moment was several years ago at the beach eating crab followed by a family water balloon fight.

  2. My favorite 4th of July memory was going as a kid and picking out my own fireworks.

  3. Our Fourth of July celebrations were always full of fun with family. Now that we have moved away from all our family we are sad but excited to start our own little family traditions.

  4. Shooting off our own fireworks in the backyard is my best 4th of July memory. Now, we go to the community shows instead of buying and lighting our own. Both are fun ways to celebrate!!

  5. My favorite memories is remembering the 4 of July’s spent watching my brother and Dad and the excitement over fireworks. I grew up in Bellingham, WA and the firework shows over the bay were always beautiful

  6. We used to have fireworks at our old family home with all the extended family. We had homemade ice cream every year. I loved it.

  7. My favorite memory of 4th of July when I moved to a new house. Two days before hear some firecrackers going off and looked out the window. Our neighbo across the street was launching fireworks in a homemade launcher. It was time to meet the new neighbors because we had the same thing. Been friends ever since even though they moved to Colorado and that was 14 years ago.

  8. My favorite fireworks memory is watching them over the water in Destin. So beautiful to see the reflection in the water!!

  9. When I was younger and all my family lived in the same small town in Eastern Arkansas we would have the best Fourth of July get togethers! It was always a lot of good food and fun!!! Thoes are my favorite July 4th memories!!

  10. Bbqing with the family and watching the firework shows has always been my favorite memory of the fourth

  11. My favorite 4th of July memories include big family gatherings with our own fireworks display.

  12. I would LOVE to win these tickets for my family! My favorite memory of the 4th was last year. My daughter had just turned 1 a couple of months earlier and it was her first real 4th. We got to spend it with my husband’s grandparents in NE and we were all taking turns walking her around (trying to teach her to walk). She got so much practice that she started walking about a week after we got home! She enjoyed the family and the fireworks and so did we! 🙂

  13. My favorite memory is on the beach in Washington State at Ocean Shores – cold sand, salty breeze sitting with my entire family. The fireworks blazing high above us.

  14. My favorite 4th of July memories are sitting in the back of my dad’s truck watching the fireworks at the NWA Mall every year growing up. Also, going to the rodeo every year!

  15. One of my favorite 4th of July memories is the first time we took out daughter to watch the fireworks! The look on her face was priceless. This year will be another great memory. It will be my little boys first 4th of July!

  16. When I was 11 I went to NY to see my best friend that had moved there. We spent the evening on the lake and I couldn’t believe how cold it was! Bundled under a blanket in sweats and still freezing!

  17. Our anniversary is July 5th so one of my favorite memories is our rehearsal dinner on July 4th, that year. We practiced at th church and then had a barbecue and fireworks at the park!

  18. My favorite was when my kids were smaller and fascinated with the colors and sounds!

  19. I love to be with my family on the 4th. We have a cookout & eat ice cream every year.

  20. The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays! As a child, we would go to our neighbor and friends pool to have a potluck, swim, and shoot fireworks. Everyone in the neighborhood would come, and it was such a magical night!

  21. My now husband helping light fireworks for a small town fireworks show in OK. So nervous, scared, & proud of him for being a volunteer of the community!

  22. Since 4th of July is my favorite holiday, each year has brought me a multitude of memories. I think my favorite memories are watching fireworks, with my girls (as babies) sitting in my lap, and they were utterly amazed at the beautiful creations in the sky. They were magical and the moments will be forever cherished.

  23. When I was a little girl, my dad and I always bought and shot off the fireworks together. Miss him!

  24. Last year wpuld be our most memorable and exciting fourth!!! My sweet daughter asked Jesus into her heart and was baptized!! It was so beautiful and I am one very proud momma 🙂

  25. My favorite 4th memory was when I was a kid, growing up in bentonville, we would always go watch the fireworks over one of the lakes in Bella vista with family friends. At that time, there was no bathroom out there open at night and my friends mother, who’s hysterical anyway, had to go to the bathroom so bad and couldn’t hold it. So she, my mom, and their girls were Nearly rolling in laughter as my mom held a “tent” over her and she “relieved” herself in the grass amongst many unknowing fireworks watchers. I never forget the hilarity of the moment in the midst of shooting fireworks 😀

  26. My favorite 4th of July memory goes back a long time to a fireworks show we watched in Springfield, MIssouri with my cousins. It was the biggest I had seen at the time. We were really close to where they were setting them off and I remember lying on a blanket and looking up at them and it appeared they were falling on us. It was one of my favorite summer memories!

  27. Mine was about 5 years ago when my nephew from Arizona joined us in Arkansas and had his first chance at shooting off his own fireworks. Living in the city/desert where he does he has never been able to do it. Had so much fun watching them

  28. My favorite memory is when we were on the Outer Banks of NC on the 4th and were able to watch the fire works while sitting on the beach. It was gorgeous watching them over the water.

  29. My favorite 4th of July memory is watching fireworks on the lake! Flashes of light reflecting all over the water… Just beautiful!

  30. My youngest was born July 3rd, 2004–I fondly remember listening to the fireworks outside my hospital room cuddling my tiny boy. He will always be my favorite firecracker 🙂

  31. A few years ago our family was in NYC over the holiday. We watched the Macy firework show from a ferry on the Hudson River.

  32. My favorite 4th has to be the 4th we spent in Cairo, Egypt. We went to the party at the American embassy and the minute we stepped inside, it felt like we’d come home to America. They had hot dogs, ice cream, party games and fireworks. We spread out a blanket on the lawn and had a picnic and enjoyed a concert. It’s what millions of Americans do on the 4th, but being able to participate in the holiday when we were so far from home and family was wonderful!

  33. My favorite memory is watching the flag light up at the end of the SCC fireworks show each year. I like on Facebook and Pinterest and receive newsletter.

  34. Favorite 4th of July was watching fireworks in Boston, listening to the Boston Pops. I’d love to do that again!

  35. My childhood always seemed to have perfect 4th of July celebrations–grilling out at the park by the river, sparklers, fireworks, and red, white, and blue cakes. The memories are a blur of sweat-laden, south Texas perfection.

  36. fond memories of watching fireworks while sitting on a blanket with my family on the golf course at the country club when i was a little girl. down in mosquitoville, but we sprayed on the off and broke out the sparklers 🙂

  37. My favorite memory is going to the firework stand with my dad to pick out fireworks. He was just as excited as us kids were! And we loved writing our names in the air with sparklers.

  38. One of my fondest memories of Fourth of July was spending the day at the Rudy Creek and then going to watch the fireworks in Van Buren with my family when I was a little girl.
