What is your favorite memory of Fourth of July?

"I grew up in New York state so we would go to Lake Ontario and have a bonfire and set off fireworks. We had sparklers as a kid."

Pamela Schwartz, Redwood City

"Every year my family watches fireworks from a parking lot."

Ryan Tabora, Redwood City

"In high school, I went kayaking on Shoreline Lake and watched the fireworks while being on the lake."

Anuk Burli, Redwood City

"I don't usually do much to celebrate the Fourth of July, but when I was really young my whole family went to my great-aunt's house. We went swimming in her pool and had a barbecue."

Jamie Minden, Mountain View

"As a kid, I lived in a cul-de-sac and ... neighbors would bring tables and all the families would come to the end of the cul-de-sac. Everyone would bring food and we'd party."

Sidney Natesan, Mountain View
