The 4th of July in The Great State!

In Texas, we celebrate everything BIG TIME!
You know, the old 'Bigger is Better' adage is ALMOST the Texas tagline. So it 's no surprise that the Fourth of July is one of the biggest celebrations of all!

Texans are mighty proud of their state, and their freedoms.  They don't take it for granted. (They  had to fight TWICE for it! )
I won't go into a history lesson here, but believe me..., we love to have a good time, and July 4th is one mighty BIG reason to party!

So where is the absolute BEST place to celebrate the 4th of July in Texas?
Make no mistake, it's the granddaddy party place of all.....AUSTIN!

This is the city that boasts 'Willie Nelson's 4th of July 'Picnic' (today is the 37th);
it's the city that has a nickname, 'The Third Coast" ( based on music and film collaborations);
and it's also the city that has for YEARS proudly worn a bumper sticker demanding to "Keep Austin Weird'!
(I am absolutely convinced that if Austin, Texas was a real-life person, it would be the first person invited to the party because it has so many friends, it's not shy, and EVERYONE LOVES IT!)

So, for those of us firmly planted in the desert of West Texas,  it was a real treat to celebrate the festivities last July as close to Austin as we could physically get..... on Lake LBJ.
Barbecue, beer, boats and big blasts of color over the water.....
"God Bless America" and "God Bless Texas!"
