Just For Fun
We hope you enjoyed our spectacular fireworks display. A firework fun fact: The discovery of fireworks, or namely the formulation of gunpowder, is believed to have occurred by chance approximately 2,000 years ago in China. Last year the value of fireworks imported from China to the United States was $190.7 million dollars.
Here are more fascinating facts about the fourth of July: Americans spend the same amount on charcoal and popsicles during the holiday weekend. Last year, $111 million dollars were spent on both items. Love Grandma Beach’s Apple Pie? Those apples most likely came from Washington or New York which are the two top apple producing states.
