Enjoy Your Extended 4th of July Weekend!
First off let me say, PLEASE enjoy responsibly this 4th of July weekend. I know extended weekends are perfect excuses to party ballz to the wallz, but line up a designated driver, or have a cab number on speed dial if you plan on hittin the sauce. The city of Austin will once again be under a NO Refusal weekend, both on the water, and on the road. That means police will be drawing blood if anyone is under the suspicion of driving or operating a vehicle under the influence. Again, this NO refusal is in effect for both water and the road.
Oh, so you like fireworks? On the safe side, wherever you are, check to see if there's a burn ban in effect for your local. Fireworks are against the law in the city of Austin... you've been warned. Snakes and snappers are allowed, and who doesn't love snakes? Why not leave it up to the professionals? This year the big firework show will be at the 360 Amphitheatre at the Circuit of The Americas.
Every year I post a best of FAIL video of people using fireworks the wrong way. Maybe they thought it was a good idea when they lit the fuse, but it's a FAIL video, so you know things won't end well. Have a rockin extended weekend my fellow Rowdy Rockers, and by all means, enjoy responsibly, and don't end up on a FAIL video for best of 2015!
And check out how they do it in Dubai!
