4th of JulyEveryone celebrates the holidays a little differently. So we wanted to give you a behind the scenes look into Pacific Company and what our family here does. For America’s birthday we bring you Staff Picks: 4th of July edition.

4th of July

Jeff – “Our family spends the 4th of July up at our lake house on Deer Lake. Every year instead of a regular parade they have a boat parade. Where the families with the boats line up and do a parade around the lake. It ends up being a huge water fight with with the people on the docks and the people in the boats. It’s a blast!”

Rick – “We spend the 4th watching the fireworks around the house and BBQing. We also have to keep an eye on the house and make sure it doesn’t burn down from the all the fireworks in the neighborhood.”

Gabe – “When I was young my dad and I would spend a lot of time playing with those black snakes. They ones that you light on fire and they grow. We would get hours of entertainment out of those! After we moved to the Spokane area we would drive out to Grand Coulee Dam for the 4th. We would spend all night watching the fireworks!”

Jessica – “When I was little we would go over to Butte on the 3rd for the fireworks show. On the morning of the 4th of July we would go back to Butte for the parade. Once that was over we would go back to Anaconda and spend the day playing with the day time fireworks. When it got dark we would light off our big fireworks and put on our own show along with everyone else in town!

The last few years if we are able to make it to Montana we would go to the show in Butte on the 3rd, go to the parade on the 4th and then go to an annual BBQ at a friend’s house. From there we would go watch the fireworks show in Anaconda at night. We really miss the years that we can’t make it back there for the holiday.”

Gavin – “We head up to Loon Lake and spend the day up there.”
