Five Things To Do This Weekend

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Happy Friday!  This weekend is a big one for outdoor events …. since it is the 4th of July!  I’ve found some things to do for you and have also included a link for a list of area Fireworks Events (KC area) to help you determine where you want to head out on Sunday.  If you are looking for one close to where you live, you can possibly go to your local news station as many times, they provide links of displays for their viewers. 

We actually are able to sit in our front yard and watch all of our neighbors burn up their hard dollars and have quite a nice showing!   So, we don’t have to go anywhere!!
