4th of July’s Most Unknown Historical Coincidence!

Did you know that three U.S. Presidents have died on the 4th of July… two of them on the same day in the same year! Wow, two Ex-Presidents died on the same day in history, with one being born on July 4th… unbelievable!

In a remarkable coincidence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. Although not a signer of the Declaration of Independence, James Monroe, the Fifth President of the United States, died on July 4, 1831. Calvin Coolidge, the Thirtieth President, was born on July 4, 1872, and thus was the only President to be born on Independence Day.

When you win a bar bet using this trivia, drink a beer for me! 🙂

Key West’s 4th Of July Fireworks Display 2018

WELCOME TO KEY WEST’S 4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS DISPLAY 2018!

In this blog I’ll tell you where to see Key West’s FREE Dazzling Fireworks Show, what time your FREE extravaganza begins, where to find FREE parking for your car, where to sit for your FREE upcoming display, what to take for your own FREE devouring pleasure, and where to exit FREE of traffic jams all for the incredible price of reading this blog… that means it’s ALL FREE! That my friends falls within my budget! 🙂

There’s still time, it’s NOT too late to make plans for your Key West 4th! The grandiose fireworks spectacular is launched from the Majestic White Street Pier on the southern portion of the island. It begins approx. 30-40 minutes after sunset. One of the popular traditions is to view the fireworks from the water aboard a boat. Hmmm, for those of us that are land-lubbers the Best Seat In The House is along the seawall across from the  East Martello Tower while parking your car at Pines Park in front of the Airport. Be sure to bring your own lawn chair or blanket to sit on along with any self-made picnic goodies such as food snacks, cokes & brewskis for your consumption pleasure. Upon the conclusion of the festivities simply exit Pines Park traveling east avoiding all traffic towards the entrance to the island from which you originally entered beginning your stay here in Key West. Enjoy your FREE 30-40 minute aerial light show! It’s WELL worth it!

PS – And YES, those are adult beverages by our chair during the festivities! 🙂
