Rain and Weatherproof Yourself for the Fourth of July | Travel & Vacation Tips & Resources

Rain and Weatherproof Yourself for the Fourth of July

While most people will be preparing their first barbecue of the summer on July 4th, the sunset may produce a cooler forecast for the fireworks display in the evening. Whether you are at home or on vacation, here are some tips you can use if the weather isn’t so obliging.

If you are vacationing in New York, for example, you can view the Macy’s fireworks display at many locations, one of which is the South Street Seaport. The temperature may be a bit cooler in the evening and although there are outdoor cafes available at the pier, you will need to dress a little warmer for this grand event.

And if you are standing on a parade route or on an overpass in a city or other venue that is near water, you may need to bring some extra items as well. Here are some tips:

  1. Wear layers. Cotton shirts, slacks, sweaters, and light outer jackets will keep you quite comfortable. Wear comfortable shoes since you may have to walk some distance to the event site.
  2. If you live close to where the fireworks display is being held and decide to bring lawn chairs to watch the event, bring a blanket along as well.
  3. When it rains, it pours. If you notice that the skies are overcast, bring an umbrella and rainwear so that your family can weatherproof themselves for the occasion.
  4. You may also want to pack a thermos of soup or hot tea in case there is a definite chill in the air.
  5. If you are bringing the children, you may also want to take along hats for them as it may become windy or unusually cool.

Although firework displays are exciting and fun to watch, ensure that your family is dressed warmly and comfortably so that everyone can enjoy the event unencumbered.

Finally, check the weather forecast for that evening so that you are not completely taken by surprise.
