So 53 days till Labor Day weekend!!!
Just in case you were wondering….
Isn’t it true we live from holiday to holiday.
Didn’t get a chance to hear about the big fireworks show in downtown San Jose Friday night. Tell me, was it great?.
I heard it was!!!!! I know my friends in San Jose Rotary loved it!!! Sort of odd though that there wasn’t any kind of show or emceeing….that all of a sudden the fireworks started . Maybe next time…although that’s how it’s done in other towns. You have people gathering on the grass and finally the fireworks begin. Our crew at the KBAY Booth said we were packed…...that every prize we had was gone by the time the show began. And that everyone was in a great mood and having a ton of fun.!!!
Hopefully someone will sponsor the fireworks again next year. We can’t count on the Rotary every year. Who knows maybe the city will have the money to put it on next year. A friend of mine..Maury Kendall reminded me of how wonderful it was when we had the big festival during the day leading up to the fireworks. And we sort of did. The Bacon festival was downtown!!! LOL!!!!
All I know is that I had a wonderful time in Morgan Hill…being part of their annual parade. Always makes me feel bad that the city puts on such a wonderful parade, attended by thousands but never really gets attention outside of town. When different media outlets list parades..they rarely mention Morgan Hill’s but maybe that’s a good thing as I don’t know how many more people could line the parade route. We’re talking thousands. Sometimes I think the whole town is there…along with some Gilroy, San Martin and San Jose folks. Morgan Hill has community spirit…that’s for sure…and not just on July 4th..but every day!!! And I love that they ask me back every year!!!
Already thinking of next July 4?
If you were in charge, what would be done differently?
