We live in the Chicagoland area and next year, instead of dealing with the transit/parking/waiting/crowds aspects of watching the Navy Pier 4th of July fireworks display, I thought maybe we could just get a hotel room nearby with a balcony view and watch from there in comfort and style. It seems like many people pull this off every year. What will I need to know? [more inside]
My parents' dog is not allowed inside the house. I let her inside for two nights because it was very hot -- 105F -- outside. But now any time I go inside and leave her alone, she's frantic and begs to be let in. She already has separation anxiety. [more inside]
Asking for fiction: I would like to stage a FICTIONAL eye-related accident that involves a person falling into one of those fireworks that is a fountain of sparks. Let's say the person falling on the firework is 5'8" and the firework is at table height. The person trips and falls and gets the firework to the face. What sorts of physiological damage are we looking at? [more inside]

A rough fourth of July (and 3rd, and 5th) for my dog here in Sacramento. We want to avoid the five solid hours of booming and whistling next year by getting out of town. Can you recommend a California town or county that bans fireworks and enforces that ban? [more inside]

This is a long shot, but here goes - I'm trying to come up with evening entertainment suitable for visiting children ages 5-10, here in Nashville (tonight and tomorrow), and I see that the Sounds are putting on a fireworks display (presumably at LP Field). Does anyone know of a good viewing spot that would be comfortable for children? The likeliest spots are downtown in the midst of all the adult honkytonk. Maybe Riverfront Park or the pedestrian bridge, but it would be nice to have a kid-friendly strategy, rather than experimenting with them in tow. Suggestions handy to the Art Crawl on 5th would be especially valuable, as would any other after-dinner ideas.

It's that time of year again, and ever since the fireworks moved to the West side, it's been a struggle to sort out the best place to watch them. How far north/south do I have to go to NOT battle the insane crowds? [more inside]
Why do we not launch rockets out of tubes? If the most expensive bits of launching a rocket are the first few feet off the ground, why don't we put the rockets into a tube to make launching more efficient? [more inside]
The British (whose country I live in) do amazing fireworks displays. Is there some kind of (any kind of) international/European championship of fireworks? OR, is there a blog of fireworks display videos you can direct me to.
Ok, so it sounds like a bunch of fireworks just went off downtown. I have never had such a hard time finding info on fireworks as I have in this city. Why did they go off and where can I find any info on ones coming up? (not the 4th, got that, thanks) [more inside]

Thanks to a change in fireworks sale laws in my state, people are really lighting off their rockets and whiz-bangers and whatnot. My dog, she hates that. Does the Thundershirt actually work? Any other tips for chilling out explosion-averse dogs?

Our dog has become traumatized by the recent fireworks (I'm in the US, obviously) and is afraid to go outside at night. Even when he is taken outside he doesn't do anything - this results in late night indoor poops. What can I do to get him going in the backyard again? [more inside]

I'll be in New York City for July 4th and wanted to know where I could get the best view of the fireworks this year. I think they are going to be over the Hudson this year. Specifics appreciated.
Is there a site that lists all fireworks displays in New York City? Since fireworks require permits, they must be tracked somewhere. All summer long I hear fireworks outside my window two or three times a week, and it'd be nice to see them too!
