A Happy Way to Celebrate Independence Day + A Fireworks Giveaway!

It's June! If you've been around on the blog for awhile, you know that I always spend the week before Independence Day, sitting in a Fireworks Tent. Next week begins my 8th year, having fun, and sweating it out with friends!

And I have good news! For the past two years, the tent that I work in has offered a giveaway through my blog. This year, it's bigger and better than ever!

But before we jump into the giveaway, I'd love to remind you about why I love sitting in the fireworks tent for a week straight:

The tent I always work with partners with Hillcrest Transitional Housing. It's a ministry in our area that works with families who don't have homes. They help them by providing a place to live, basic life skills education, and the encouragement to find a full-time job. It's a 90 day program that offers a hand up instead of a hand out, because their goal is to get these families back on their feet. They have a 95% success rate, and are doing some fabulous work in our community. It's truly one of the most effective ministries in our area.

As you are buying fireworks this year, I hope you will consider coming to Lee's Summit, MO to purchase from our tent. Hillcrest Transitional Housing does great work, and we'd love to have you partner with us in this!

On top of that, military, civil service, and homeschoolers get 10% off of their purchase. But even better, we've negotiated a special discount just for YOU!
Mention the KC Bloggers code at the checkout table and get 10% off just for reading this post and coming out to the tent!
By the way, if you want to meet me, I'll be there everyday from 2pm-10pm (except for the 28th when I will be there 5pm-10pm). Meeting readers is seriously one of the biggest highlights for me!

This year, you can find us behind the Mid-Continent Public Library at:

  • 224 NW Oldham Pkwy
  • Lees Summit, Missouri 64081

  • June 27-July 2nd, open 9am - 10pm
  • July 3rd, open 9am - 10pm or later
  • July 4th, open 9am - midnight

Just look for the big yellow and white tent!

Now let's talk about the fun stuff....STUFF TO BLOW UP!!

You won't have to buy any extra fireworks to have an amazing display with this $160 set. It has enough in it to keep the whole neighborhood happy...and awake! If you click on the photo, you can make it bigger so that you can see all of the fun stuff inside!

All you have to do is enter below and then wait for us to randomly draw the winner. Please note that if you win, you will have to come pick up your prize at the tent in Lee's Summit, MO. The post office frowns on mailing explosives.

I hope that you will come out, use your KC BLOGGERS discount, and buy from the tent that partners with Hillcrest Transitional Housing this year!
