The Fifth of July

We live one town west of the famous 4th of July fireworks in Itasca.  It took our town forever to install weather sirens.  The idea was that we could hear the sirens from the communities around us, if we really needed to hear them.  Besides, they might go off in the middle of the night and wake people up.
We do have weather sirens now because a wonderful woman took on weather sirens as her cause.
Today we celebrate the Fourth of July a day late.  
I*m sure the fireworks will be spectacular as we celebrate our freedom on the Fifth.

My town*s fireworks
Are tonight.
It seems we got a deal.
We celebrate here
On the Fifth of July
Because everything is cheaper
The day after.
