4th of July lowdown

I'm getting out of the city for the 4th: roughing it in the woods, breaking free from technology, getting some sun. I love the outdoors but I have to admit that sometimes I get sad I'm never around Boston for the 4th events. If you're sticking around, here is the lowdown on the events.

Fashionable and Trendy attire is a must.
Selective Door Policy
I apologize but I must comment on this, "Fashionable and Trendy attire is a must", this is the type of attitude that is turning the world to crap. These selective processes encourage citizens to fit into a mold, removing originality and shaming people into thinking they can't be themselves. Please do not attend this event!
