July 3, 2013- Today- Burlington's Biggest Party!!!!

3rd of JulyWeather or not, here we come! Burlington’s downtown Waterfront fireworks go off tonight and we’ll be there. If you haven’t been before, go early and plan to wait a bit to leave, as more than 50,000 hit town to watch each year. This year could be just a tad easier as the weather may have some inclined to stay home, but our forecaster says showers taper as the day goes on – so maybe this is the year to do it!! Maybe we’ll see you there tonight.
