Some celebrations of Independence Day came a day early here in Ames.
A shoot technician couldn't be found so the Ames Jaycees put on its show Tuesday July 3 in stead of July 4. The festival, pancake breakfast and parade still took place July 4.
For most of us that meant working a full day Tuesday and then going out to the show, rather than having the day off and staying out late on the 4th and going back to work the next day.
Do you like have the fireworks the day before the 4th or on the 4th? Tell us in the comments.
