The night of the 4th, we had a cookout and then went and found a quiet place on the lake to watch fireworks. We couldn't see the main ones but saw some very nice ones and didn't have to deal with the crowds. Finding a place to stay over the 4th if you don't have reservations way in advance, which we didn't, was a problem but we lucked out. We made a reservation at the fairgrounds and they let us, which they shouldn't have done unless we were with a group. So we became "beaders" and the fairgrounds folks couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Our rigs were parked off by themselves so it was quiet and peaceful - most welcome after two noisy nights in Coulee City.
