    I have attended the fireworks show at Mt. Trashmore the last 3 years and OC'd as well with no issues. Seeing as in I'll be alone on the 4th of July and days away from my depart of VA for Oklahoma I figured I'd ask....

    Who all would be interested in having a GT at one of the area fireworks shows? Could make for a good educational opportunity for the masses, a good family event, a good time, and a final OC event for me (not that that really matters).

    What do y'all think/ say about it?

    Family events will keep me near Richmond but sounds like a great idea.

    What better combination for a send off than celebrating the 4th of July - our country's birth date of independence than by OCing!

    Good luck - enjoy - keep in touch from OK.

    Sounds like fun, but the 4th is Old Va's annual Board of Directors meeting/Picnic/Shoot.

    I spent 2008 about 100 feet from the guy lighting off a 1.5 million dollar display during a PSS detail...
    How far from the Norfolk/ Va Beach area are you?

    While I love the idea of attending Harborfest on July 4 and OCing, we will probably go to the quaint little home town show in Sedley, VA. Think Mayberry. Great fireworks for a blip on the map town, and every spot is a good one.

    Sounds like a plan to me. I know there is one in Portsmouth and at the beach. However the one at Mt. Trashmore is good seats no matter where ya squat.
