Take a look at how to make your fireworks watching a success! With so many occasions this summer such as Canada Day, Independence Day, Victoria Day, The Calgary Stampede and so much more your sure to see many colourful lights in the sky.
Watch Fireworks in Style – What to Bring
Comfort. Be sure to bring chairs to sit on or a large blanket to cover the grass. If you have children, consider bringing both! Bring blankets to cover yourselves as well, it may be a hot day but when the sun goes down it can get cooler fast.
Pre-Fireworks Entertainment. This is especially important if you are going with little ones. Getting a great spot means you might have to get to the park early, and since fireworks cannot start until dark, there may be quite a bit of down time. Bring toys, bubbles and games that will keep everyone occupied until the show begins!
Bug Spray. Depending on your location you may want to bring the bug spray along. Most fireworks are set off near water or in fields which can be heavy with bugs. Try to avoid bringing bug lanterns or coils as these can be bothersome and distracting to others who are there to enjoy the show too.
Snacks. Bring snacks! Popcorn, candy and cookies. What’s a show without a yummy snack? Also, bring drinks. There’s nothing worse then finally setting up and realizing you don’t have anything to eat or drinks…doubly true if you have kids!
Photos. Don’t forget your camera! Make sure to turn your flash off and don’t forget the burst mode, this way you can take a bunch of pictures and delete the ones you don’t like later. Share the good ones on social media, I love seeing the festive fireworks! But, remember to look up every once in a while and enjoy the moment…in the moment!
Don’t think we forgot about home decor goodies! If you’re planning on having a few fireworks in your own backyard, don’t forget to dress up your patio. After all, what’s a fireworks display without an awesome BBQ?
