Sound Memory: the 4th of July

This could have been Anywhere, USA.
And everyone's memory of those nights are pretty much the same, I would think. As a child, and then as a teen, the whole town gathering outdoors at a park, or swimming hole, or public place. Just that element of danger to spice up a summer's night, and make it unforgettable. Doing lots of illegal things, and getting away with it. Miraculously not getting my fingers blown off.
