This has been a tradition of our family's for somewhere around 8 years now. It's become quite a big deal here for the whole city of Lacey. There is a good firework show that happens in a local parking lot; however, the fun begins much earlier in the day. People start setting up their "spots" in local parking lots as early at 8am, and then hang out for the majority of the day. Our family staked out and saved our spots around 10am this year. We reserve around 15 spots and then many friends and family come and join us for snacks, a bbq, games, cards, etc. while we wait for the firework show at night. It's a good time!
