At Skamania Lodge, we are fortunate to have a perfect front row seat for the 4th of July fireworks. Last night was a beautiful night to enjoy the fun! We hope you had a wonderful holiday.
Did you know that in 1777, on the one-year anniversary of the signing of the Declaration, Philadelphians celebrated by lighting firecrackers and otherwise making merry. "The United States was still in the midst of the Revolutionary War and the outcome was still uncertain, but beautiful displays of fireworks instilled a sense of hope and patriotism in the citizens of the young nation," according to Pyro Universe's web page on the History of Fireworks.
This lodge is one of the friendliest places I know. Everyone seems to genuinely enjoy working there and doing whatever they can to assist the guests.
