  1. My favorite memory is when I was a child and my cousins from Texas came in. It seemed the fireworks on the ground always chased one particular cousin!

  2. My favorite 4th of July memory is going to watch fireworks with my family and my aunt oohing and aahing at every firework. 🙂

  3. I remember going to Lake Atlanta every year with my family. I loved watching the fireworks and playing in the creek.

  4. I remember the first year we really got to enjoy fireworks as a kid. My dad took us up on the roof that year to eat ice cream and watch other fireworks going off in the area. Best Fourth ever!

  5. Favorite childhood memory was going to the fair. Eating tons of cotton candy and watermelon, and a blanket in the field to watch spectacular fireworks show. Who doesn’t love the 4th!?

  6. Being with family and friends while enjoying picnics outside, waiting for the fireworks

  7. My favorite memory is sitting out on our back porch listening to all the fireworks going off around us the first year we lived in Arkansas.

  8. Growing up, we always had a block party on the 4th of July. Everyone would bring their grills out to the street, we would barricade the street on both ends, then grill, eat, and all shoot fireworks. Such a great childhood memory!

  9. I remember us always spending time with friends and bottle Rocket blast!!!!

  10. We lived in Little Rock and would go down to the river to watch fireworks & listen to the orchestra play patriotic songs. Great memories!

  11. Family, friends and fireworks at the lake are some of my favorite memories.

  12. My Husband and I went out together for the first time 11 years ago this 4th of July. We had blizzards at Dairy Queen so every year we continue the tradition.

  13. For the Fourth of July, the kids would decorate bikes, scooters and themselves for a neighborhood parade. We would then eat brunch, later grill out and watch the fireworks after a siesta.

  14. When I was a kids and was in St. Louis for Fourth of July fire works at the Arch. Best show ever!

  15. As a child we lived out in the country and always did our own big family fireworks show with watermelon, homemade apple pie, and homemade ice cream. Oh and I can’t forget BBQ!

  16. Watching fireworks when they were at nothwest Arkansas mall before they built toomany condos around them
    Watching at CLC church and having hotdogs, funnel cakes face paintings bouncy houses
    Watermelon. Favorite foof

  17. Going to my grandparents house in Mena and grilling burgers, swimming & watching the city fireworks show from their yard.

  18. Several years ago, an acquaintance invited our family over for a 4th of July party. Nearly everyone left after dinner except just a couple of families. We all vaguely knew each other, but weren’t yet “friends”— until we spent hours together, watching all of our kids chase fireflies, and setting off fireworks. Now all of us are friends- that (initially awkward) holiday brought us all together!

  19. My favorite memory would be being at my grandparents. We had a great cookout with lots of food and homemade churned ice cream.For the grand finale my granddad took out a box filled with fireworks. I was maybe 8,and had never seen them so close. Every time he set one off I ran for the hills!! But came back to see another, then run for the hills, again…everyone cracked up laughing. Then came the sparkler and I was in “love”
