Fourth of July means food and fun for many

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

When you think of Fourth of July, you think of fireworks.

"Well, I've got a big job here," Dan Willis said. "I gotta cut this grass, gotta make it good, clean and green."

Go Dan. That's the spirit, the American spirit.

"Doesn't sound like much BBQing going on with that," Willis said. "Well, no, not today. Maybe later on this afternoon. But gotta get this job done first."

Willis is just getting ready for his family's arrival.

The alternative approach to this day is across town at the Village at Sandhill.

"Food, drink, music, fireworks - a lot of free entertainment here to spend a wonderful Independence Day with this glorious weather and some quality time with the family... Technically, you come out here have a great time, not spend a dime," said Jeff Harper.

Well, maybe a little money on some of the food, but the alternative is a lot of work in the sun. Kind of like mowing grass.

So there you have it. Take the day to knock off a few chores or just kick back. Either way, the only way to end the Fourth of July is with a bang or two.
