Got plans for July 4th?

Still wondering how and where to celebrate July 4th this year?

Finding a fireworks display won’t be very hard. Towns small and large set those off.

South Dakota – fireworks over Homestake Mine

But here at StuckatTheAirport.com, we have a few offbeat celebrations to suggest.

The tiny town of George, WA, promises a “Family-friendly, Old-Fashioned Independence Day in a Great Little American Town.”

Festivities include a parade, a fun run, music, food, kids activities, pie eating and cherry pit spit contests and evening fireworks.

But our favorite part of the day features free slices from the World’s Largest Cherry Pie, which is 8-feet by 8-feet and made each year by The Georgettes, a local community group.

And in Baltimore, we love the July 4th pet parade hosted by the American Visionary Art Museum.

Pets – and their people – can participate in the parade for free. There are trophies awarded in categories such as Best Costume, Most Patriotic, Most Visionary Pet, Owner & Pet Lookalikes and Least Likely to Succeed as a Pet.

After the parade, there’s a Pet Talent [or Not] Show.

How are you celebrating July 4th this year?
