Happy Almost 4th of July in Roseville!
It’s the 4th of July in Roseville and around the country on SUNDAY 2021! A time when MANY in Roseville CA and our surrounding Sacramento Valley area love to buy their own fireworks to celebrate this fun season! But beware – there are several extra warnings this year. One in particular – it’s hot, it’s dry, and THAT is making our Roseville California area a bit on the flammable side. So if you do your own fireworks, be sure to do them safely – including with LEGAL safe and sane fireworks!
And while you are at it, be cautious to save on your utilities – even our awesome City of Roseville Utilities, that rarely has power outages, is concerned about…..power outages! Gasp! And power outages combined with a fire could be a VERY bad combination!
Where to Buy Your Roseville Fireworks
There are a lot of places to buy your fireworks for the 4th of July in Roseville this year. My favorite this year is the RCONA (Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations) TNT fireworks booth, 1771 Pleasant Grove, Roseville CA 95747, at the corner of Pleasant Grove and Fiddyment. Partly because I love to volunteer with RCONA through Cherry Glen Neighborhood and Woodcreek Oaks Neighborhood. Partly because our RCONA fireworks booth is manned by so many great volunteers – including many from RCONA and our various neighborhood associations, as well as Living Hope which is co-sharing the booth with RCONA. And partly because it’s so nicely located to all our 55+ senior retirement communities in West Roseville – so I get to see it often while working with buyers and sellers in the whole West Roseville area – not to mention Central Roseville AND East Roseville. Check out my videos about the RCONA booth:
Here’s one spotlighting some of our volunteers coupled with one of the many patriotic holiday songs I love!
And by the way! If you are thinking of fireworks – DON’T DILLY DALLY! We may now have enough toilet paper BUT there is now a dramatic shortage of fireworks at all the booths and once they’re out – they’re OUT! So head to the CVS at Fiddyment and Pleasant Grove and have fun shopping for fireworks – be sure to tell them you are there for RCONA and your neighborhood association.
What’s that you say? You would rather go watch big fireworks somewhere? Awesome! Roseville has you covered! They are having community fireworks at the Placer County Fairgrounds, now called @the Grounds, 700 Event Center Drive, Roseville, CA 95678 – enter off Junction Blvd. between Washington and Foothills.

Got Dogs and Granddogs Who Are Afraid of Fireworks?
I know that feeling. I will be cuddling up to one who will be wearing his Thunder Shirt all evening (see the pix above) on the 4th enjoying the fireworks from one of my fave movies, Independence Day and/or reading my latest fave book series, Chaos – in the Blink of an Eye! (If you liked the Left Behind series, you should enjoy this as well.) 😃 The cuddling and Thunder Shirt usually keep him fairly calm and happy. 😊
Looking for Fun and Patriotic Ideas for Kids and Grandkids
My grandkids and I have been enjoying making yummy patriotic treats with Oreo cookies with extra frosting. We twist them apart and have fun decorating the side with the frosting.
Plus the website TeachersPayTeachers.com has several cute patriotic coloring pages that are FREE – you do have to register but it’s free and easy and they are a great resource! And no. You don’t have to be a teacher. Here’s the link to these two below. Otherwise, just search for patriotic coloring pages – and then be sure to change SORT from relevance to PRICE ASCENDING and it gives you all the free ones first. 😃 They have a wide variety of items available for all the holidays and so much more (including paid) and for all ages even up to high school.
Scroll to the bottom of my post – Independence Day Smiles In Roseville and Beyond – and check out some of the red white and blue crafts ideas in it. 😀
