July 4, 2015 – On July 3rd we ventured into East Aurora for the fireworks show at the park. Even though we were there 30 minutes before the show, the baseball field was totally packed. We were lucky to find a spot right by the pitcher’s mound, spread out our blanket, and enjoyed about 30 minutes of very nice fireworks. 🙂
On July 4th we all went to Old Fort Niagara to watch the French and Indian War reenactment. There were quite a few re-enactors taking part. Before they started the 2pm battle, we explored some of the buildings inside the fort. If you walk to the top of any of the towers, watch for nesting barn swallows (and maybe wear a hat 😉 ).
