2015 Fun 4th Recap

Well, another Fun 4th Festival has come and gone and it was one for the books!  I heard from multiple people that this was their favorite year yet and I couldn't agree more.  We had perfect weather, great music, tasty food and it made for a wonderful day.  Every year, I recap my favorite Fun 4th moments, so here are my top five from 2015!

1.  The Tiny House

I was going to say that these are in no particular order, but the Tiny House really was my number one favorite thing this year.  It was so cool to see one of these houses in person and take a tour.  Plus, they have an awesome mission which you can read about here: Tiny House Greensboro.

2.  Rides!!!

I never get a chance to go on any of the rides, so I made a promise to change that this year.  I rode this giant slide, ran through an obstacle course, and won a little pink dog playing darts.  I also met a lot of really cute kids in line for the Jurassic bounce house.  It was all pretty awesome.

3.  Troopers in the rain.

The night of the Block Party a huge rain storm was looming over us the entire time.  Despite that, tons of people came out and stuck with us through the bad weather.  People danced in the rain or pulled out umbrellas and just kept having a good time.  The Part Time Party Time Band jammed through the whole thing.  Thanks for hanging in there with us!

4.  Babies on the beach.

New for 2015, we brought the beach to Fun 4th!  To be honest, I was a bit of a skeptic when I heard we were bringing in dump trucks full of sand, but it turned out to be a great addition to the festival.  The kids playing in the sand with beach balls were adorable.

5.  All new spectacular fireworks.

We upped our fireworks game this year and they didn't disappoint.  I got to watch them from the top of the Greene Street parking deck and even from a distance they were fabulous.  Reports from the amphitheater were that the new show was super cool and I'm jealous I couldn't be there in person.  The pictures don't do them justice!

You can view all of the pictures from this year's Fun 4th on our Flickr page here.  If you took any pictures you'd like to share, send them our way!  We'd love to see them.
