Between fireworks, festivities, and pure, outdoor fun for kids and families, Fourth of July is definitely the peak of summer. Here's hoping you are one of the lucky ones to get a four-day weekend! The nation's annual birthday party began last weekend, and it continues to its explosive end this Saturday and Sunday. Fireworks shows are on the agenda all across the state, including Greenwich, New Milford, Darien, and Waterbury. If fireworks aren't something your family enjoys, there's a nice festival in Norwalk this weekend. Seriously, it's called The Nice Festival and it celebrates international culture and diversity. In Ansonia, the annual Midsummer Renaissance Faire is entering its final weekend, as is Cirque du Soleil's "Luzia" in Hartford.
