Thursday, July 3's Lowdown

Any ol' community can celebrate America's birthday on the normal day. But remember how rewarding it was when you were a kids and your parents let you open one present the night before Christmas? Kinda felt like you were grtting away with something, didn't it? Well, that's how your Lowdown is going to rationalize Fortuna’s America party taking place a day early on Thursday in Newburg Park during the Fortuna Fireworks Festival. Head on down if you can't wait any longer for explosions.

The rest of y'all can wait for tomorrow. -AG
