Having our fireworks Wednesday night — and scheduling the 4th of July for a Thursday — was the best idea since the Declaration of Independence.
All around Westport yesterday — at the beach, Longshore, the Y, wherever anyone hangs out* — people said, “Today feels like Sunday.”
But it was Friday!
Since Wednesday, we’ve taken full advantage of everything our town offers.
Clouds may roll in today. But we’ve still got 2 days to celebrate the longest weekend ever.
We should have July 4th in the middle of the week every year.
*But not the office, because no one worked.
