There will be several fireworks displays in Northern Nevada celebrating July 4th in style. I’d much rather have people go see the professional shows than to get an accidental fire started due to people playing with illegal ones! It is just too dry to take the chance!
Carson City: after dark at Mills Park
Fallon: ~8:45-9 off Rattlesnake Raceway
Incline Village/Crystal Bay: after dark at Incline Beach
Reno: ~9 pm at Wingfield Park
Sparks: ~9:45 pm off the top of John Ascuaga’s Nugget
Tahoe City: at dusk on Commons Beach
Virginia City: after dusk in the Comstock Hills for 25 minutes
Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!

On a rainy day (and there are a lot of those in Portland, OR) Austin and his friends love to visit the Portland Children’s Museum. He even had his first birthday party there.
Last weekend in Monterey, CA, we discovered the My Museum where the kids were totally having fun.
As a kid, Austin’s Mommy enjoyed the Children’s Museum in San Jose, CA.
All of these children’s museums are just awesome places to explore! While on the internet I stumbled on the My Museum.com for the Children’s Museum of the Brazos Valley in Bryan, TX. It has some very interesting activities as well.
Co-worker Leslie says her grandson absolutely loves the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, CA. Check that one out, too!
Found a Told U So blog entry for the Children’s Museum in La Habra. That traveling exhibit of “Ring of Fire” (through June 14) looks fun, too! The blog has LOTS of ideas on it, as well!
The Tucson Children’s Museum has several fun exhibits. Here are some pointers.
At the Carson City, Nevada Children’s Museum there are lots of interesting programs going on as well as the on-going exhibits.
