That's cool, DualThing.

There is a 'long standing' Tradition in Lander, Wyoming on Veterans Day, November 11th.
The local 'Veterans of Foreign Wars' (VFW) members sponsor a free hot cake breakfast. (Donations accepted)

They drive around town, waking Everybody UP, with miniature muzzle loading cannons.

The local Radio Station announces this Tradition to the New-comers for several days preceding the 11th. But every year the police department must calm a few fears.

Technically, South Africa is Older than the US of A, then. 1776, we declared Independence from Great Britain on July the 4th. Therefore we celebrate 'Independence Day' on July 4th.

You Ought to See, the the aerial fireworks display Above the ENTIRE town of Lander, WY on the 4th of July!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about 'bombs bursting in air'!!
