Scottsdale isn't. Paradise Valley isn't. I don't know of any other town in the greater Phoenix area that is doing fireworks. It looks like the Tempe town lake is the only fireworks show in town. It's going to be swamped. Should we cancel the pool party and just go straight to the town lake early, or would you rather start with the pool party and have us move en masse to the town lake earlier in the day and continue the party there? I think it may be best to head over there about 3-4PM, and just carry on the party and enjoy the festivities that we'll be paying $5 for anyways. If we're going to do this, then we will really, really need shade. I'm not hot (no pun intended) on hanging out in the sun and heat all afternoon long, but I don't have an awning tent. But at the same time, if we don't show up early, we don't stand a chance of getting a spot on the grass, let alone a parking spot. Feedback? Thoughts? Alternatives? I'd love to hear them.
