Silverton II is a great place for 4th of July fireworks viewing


My last newsletter from the Silverton II HOA invited everyone to watch the 4th of July fireworks display (at the Peoria Sports Complex) from the Silverton II "front lawn" – the huge grassy area on the north side of Beardsley and between 87th and 89th Aves.

I think this sounds like a great idea!

Every year we struggle with the dilemma of watching fireworks – you have to get there early to get a good spot, then you cook in the heat for a few hours (and get eaten by ants!) while dealing with little ones getting impatient. Eventually you get to see the fireworks, but the display is interrupted by bouts of crying from overtired children who are up past their bed times!

This will be a way to show up a little bit later and not have to fight a huge crowd. Count us in – I hope to see you there!
