Family Fourth — Independence Day Celebration

When: Sun., July 4, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. 2010

Fun fact about July 4: It's the best holiday on which to have a birthday. My sister knows it and has decreed a tradition of buying a fat firecracker to explode in the back yard ("Best $10 Dad ever spent!"). Well, she lives in another state and I shouldn't promote such awesome foolishness here, so enjoy America's birthday with good, clean fun at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site (3202 Chambers Way, rockledgeranch.com) from 10 to 5, or Manitou Springs High School, (401 El Monte Place, Manitou Springs, 685-2004) from 8 to 10:30, or on the athletic fields at U.S. Air Force Academy (556-2263) at 4. Expect nice views of fireworks, food and music at each locale. — Edie Adelstein
