Theres a reason why Americans love the TV show Mythbusters, and its not because were all gung-ho about scientific experiments (yawn). Theres nothing we love more than watching shit explode, as evidenced not only by the shows ratings but by our yearly tradition of setting fire to the sky to mark our territorys independence.
This year brings no shortage of fireworks displays on Monday, July 4, including the free Fabulous Phoenix Fourth celebration taking place at 6 p.m. at Steele Indian School Park, 300 East Indian School Road in Phoenix. The family-friendly festival has a retro feel, with classic tunes from Come Back Buddy and Uptown Angels, plus a kids play area and an armed forces ceremony complete with an ear-splitting F-16 flyover.
