Hooray for the red, white and blue -

Hooray for the red, white and blue - Monday, June 16, 2008 - Copyright 2007 "There’s nothing like celebrating the Fourth of July for bringing out families and fun. This year’s lineup is sure to have something for everyone: fireworks, cookouts, top stars, parades and even “weiner” dog races. It’s enough to make one don his red, white and blue, and carry a sparkler.
The myriad of choices begins with taking a drive east to the Crosby Fairgrounds on June 28 to kick the season off. The East Lake Houston Fourth of July Celebration will feature a car show, fireworks music, a pie-baking contest, kid zone, karaoke, cook-off and wiener dog races.
It will be a chance to see patriotism put to work as hundreds of veterans are fed lunch as part of the celebration. Admission is free."
Although the event is free, donations for the lunch will be accepted and
funds raised will benefit a local charity, Blue Star Moms, which provides care
packages to men and women in the military and supports their families at home.
