Rockford Scanner™: Happy 4th of July!



 

 


Happy 4th of July! 

Today is one of my favorite days of the year! 

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July!

Send us your 4th off July celebration or firework videos, to RockfordScanner@Gmail.com

It is going to be a beautiful day out there, High of 90 degrees.  There is a slight chance of storms between 3pm and 6 pm. But that should not effect the fireworks displays.  

I plan on attending the Downtown or Shorewood Park fire works.  I have yet to make up my mind. Both are good.  So if you see me, feel free to stop and say hi! 🙂 

I will probably be streaming LIVE, the fireworks display on our Facebook page at  Rockford Scanner Facebook Page

If you fly your quad-copter (AKA: Drones)  I would love to see those videos!  
Note: Just be sure to call the RFD tower to request flight clearance if you are within 5 miles of the airport. They do grant clearance all the time to quad-copter pilots.
The RFD tower number is: 815-484-5312

Remember, if you are lighting off fireworks, the police plan on cracking down on that again this year.  So do so at your own discretion. 

I hate to be the Debbie Downer and tell you that, because I love fireworks. But the law is the law.  

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July!  ~ Rickie Traeger
