The Seaside Fireworks Spectacular is back and bigger than ever! From 10:00 AM until the last freedom fighters go home, the beaches of Seaside will be overrun on July 4th by those coming out to celebrate Independence Day or freedom in general.

Sponsored by the Terran-American Expat Club, Hunt Energy, and H&A Industries, the event is open and free to the public. Featuring food, drinks, and family friendly beach activities, the crowning jewel of the evening will be an hour long fireworks show put on shortly after sundown. Rumor has it, some of the lingering Midsummer Fae magic has been commandeered to make this show even bigger and better than years prior.

A number of the city's food trucks and independent eateries have come out for the event, all providing their fare at absolutely no charge (though said eateries are reimbursed by sponsors accordingly). While there may be no cost to partake, donations are being accepted for the Rhydin Welcome Center and the Rhydin LGBTQ Community Outreach Center





Food, Drinks, and Festivities:



























[[Polyvore sets, outfits, visits to the Spectacular? Feel free to drop them here. Everyone that participates will get an icon!

Have a food vendor you'd like to add? Please feel free to do so! Any vendors would be paid for their services by the sponsors so as to provide food at no charge to the public

Na-rae decided to tug her favorite senpai from Kabuki out to Seaside for some fireworks, food, and more food. There may have been choking when she challenged Izumi to a watermelon eating contest.

It didn't take much dragging. Izumi was excited for the event and she would never back down from her determination to defeat her friend at that watermelon eating contest.

Though not a Terran herself, Claire had a thing for fireworks. And so the Diamond joined in on the festivities with Cooper and the twins in tow. There was plenty to be eaten though she stayed away from all of the pretty drinks and stuck to water for the most part. Averia built sand castles and Alexander spent much of his time in or near the water before the whole fam gathered together on a fluffy blanket when it came time to watch the firework show.

Saila couldn't stay all day on account of needing to go be a cat, but she had enjoyed herself at the party the year before and didn't want to miss out on the festivities entirely. She hung out long enough to drink some colorful drinks, make a sandcastle or two, and watch Izumi eat a positively staggering amount of watermelon.

Nothing would keep the dynamic duo away from a pyrotechnics show, even if Niko spent most of his day playing with little Addie, Avy, and Alex.

Duci arrived with Ashley and consumed several of each drink and at least one of every kind of food. She made a massive hot tub sandcastle for Ashley and partook in any and all beachside games before lounging out to enjoy the fireworks and present company.

The blonde was sure to blow kisses for everyone she knew, perhaps even stopping to chat and catch up, and didn't hesitate to wink lasciviously to any eye candy that crossed her path.

Ishmerai arrived at the beach shortly after dawn (as instructed) to claim "prime beach real estate" with a series of umbrellas, blankets, towels, beach chairs, and fully stocked coolers.

Jewell and Sapphire arrived mid-morning, ready for a long day at the beach. They were immensely pleased with the perfect spot the poor knight had reserved for them. They needed the space if Hope, Evelyn, and Eden all showed up (as they had discussed during another late-night New Haven pool party on Saturday) and brought along their friends. There was also more than enough room for other friends to jump in on Camp Empress for the day.

Jewell was happy to socialize with friends she knew and made a point of making some new ones as well (including a few young men willing to help apply lotion to her back). Sapphire and Ishmerai hung out at home base when they weren't in the water; the teen had brought along a music player and blasted some jams for their part of the beach to enjoy. She also joined in a volleyball game mid-day.

The Ilnaren entourage swept upon the beach shortly before noon, dressed for the occasion in their most relaxed summer attire. Ebon wore black swim trunks, a Hawaiian shirt, and a Chicago Cubs cap to keep the sun out of his eyes, while Phen looked stunning in a floral sun dress and matching one-piece swimsuit. They claimed a spot equidistant from the water, the volleyball net, and the food trucks.

While little Olivia made sand castles with a few of the other younger children present, Azure sat in the cool shade of a beach umbrella, until Doran coaxed her out for a game of Frisbee tossing that had the normally-reticient girl laughing. Of course, when their father joined in, the two siblings teamed up against him, because Ebon cheated, that rascal!

Telekinesis was simply not fair in a game of beach Frisbee!

Well and truly chastened, Ebon joined Doran in on a games of volleyball, playing fairly but quite well, though he did miss a surprise spike from Jewell that his son refused to let him live down. When the lad had to bow out early due to theatrical commitments, Ebon treated the family to a dinner of barbecue, loaded fries, watermelon, and funnel cake--because there simply had to be funnel cake--and they sat back to watch the fireworks display light up the night with explosions of color and sound.

Katt could be spotted at the festivities in shiny gold because....Shiny! (Seriously was the whole reason she picked out the swimsuit) She was promised fireworks and cheese fries - this seemed enough to get her to leave the work desk for a few hours.

In her company was a large catamount, who would spent most of his time basking in the sun like a lazy cat and giving quite the dirty eyed at anyone who seemed to be looking at Katt for too long.

Katt, on the other hand, played with a large beach ball...Okay so most of the playing was her balancing on her stomach like it was a resting spot so she could watch the others and eat cheese fries. Once the fireworks started it made for a comfy spot to watch them!

Of course she didn't mind chatting with others so when they showed up and wanted to make conversation with her. She made sure to share her cheese fries but getting her to move off of that ball seemed a rather hard task!

In pure cowboys fashion she wrangled Duci to come along as her date for the July 4th celebration. What's more American than hamburgers, hot dogs, flashing Dallas Cowboys pride at Sadie, and a giant sand castle hottub? Oh, and booze. Lots and lots of booze. She kept clear of the M80's (Mostly due to Sadie seeing how drunk she is) but that didn't stop her from lighting up and waving around sparklers before trying to drag Duci (or someone who she thinks is Duci) back to her towel so she could drunkingly passout for the night.

Ed dragged Goshen out bright and early to claim a section of the beach all for themselves, and his cousins (Jameson, Abby, Hector, and Linda), who happened to tag along with them. There was much drinking and passing around of questionable, smoke-able substances. Firecrackers, sparklers, and roman candles were lit in abundance. They had set up their own shaded pavilion made of beach umbrellas and the back of the van, which Jameson had parked right in the sand somewhere near enough to the water but not too close to be swallowed by the tide. They swam and partied and played all kinds of games. There was even a fair amount of PDA, some of which made Ed red in the cheeks. He couldn't even pass it off as sunburn since Goshen had been meticulous about the sunscreen.

Ed was certain to wave an exuberantly cheerful hello to anybody and everybody he recognized. He was too high most of the time to be embarrassed. Even the presence of a certain ex-boyfriend couldn't ruin his mood. The lot of them stayed for the fireworks and beyond. There were rumors of Ed and Goshen disappearing for an hour when it was good and dark. Eventually, they all passed out in the sand in the wee hours of the morning.

No fancy costume. No feast of greasy, sweet or festive foods. Just a line in the sand, marking where a kayak had been dragged down to the water, sturdy hull scuffed by the grit.

No games or sporting in the waves, no teasing and toying with possibilities. Just a few bottles of minted water and the deep rise and fall of the swells beyond the surf, a strand of seaweed draped across the bow of a blade-narrow craft, drying in the sun.

Until the sun sets, and fire lights the sky with all the hues of a garden, clarified to crystalline purity. Once the show is over, there will be another line drawn in the sand, for the tide and wind to brush away.

Not one to pass up fireworks, Antonia would show up to the party with Charley by her side. Even criminals can appreciate a day at the beach, especially one that ends with explosions. They would take their R&R for the day very seriously partaking in plenty of food, drink, and lazy swimming. When the sun sets for the evening, Charley and Antonia would find a cozy place along the shoreline to watch the show, commenting about the quality of the fireworks even without the addition of grenades.

Mist dutifully showed up for his shift at the South Gate Clinic and found himself hustled off with a few other nurses and a pair of very large orderlies into a small truck.

To their delight, they ended up on the beach, and quickly set up the first aid tents. And beach chairs. The entire crew were wearing various colorful scrubs, Mist was wearing a tunic covered in My Little Ponies.

Colorful Band-Aids with dozens of characters printed on them, a few tubs of water bottles, boxes of sample sized sun screens, throw away sunglasses and hats, packets of pain relievers, antacids, and allergy pills, along with, of course, stickers for good patients, were offered on tables in front of the tents.

Mist took advantage of his position and was first to raid the food trucks for any and everything that looked delicious, but after that, he cheerfully remained at his post. Ready to help or heal as needed.

Though Goshen spent most of the day getting high (but abstaining from anything alcoholic) with Ed and his cousins, he enjoyed the brief company of his pseudo-family for a game of frisbee in the sand. Fox and Margot didn't bother the young adults for very long, more than happy to leave Goshen with his new friends for the remainder of the night.

Patrick and a group of friends from the racing scene set up a small shade tent somewhere in the middle of the beach that was central to the festivities and prime viewing for the later fireworks. He remained in intimate company with a short brunette for most of the day. The racing crew posed for pictures when asked, but were not in attendance in any official capacity -- and that was good because they were all drunk before the sun set, which contributed to their volume as the night wore on.

Hope was not from Earth and had rarely taken the chance to visit. Even when she had, it was definitely not on the 4th of July. Still, she would be ashamed to miss out on any shenanigans and partying at the beach. She arrived and setup base with Jewell, Eden and Evelyn but made sure to have drinks with anyone who she knew- or didn't.

When she wasn't chit chatting, drinking or trying all of the activities she was sunbathing for sure working on that bronze.

Even though her day started with, "Why these colors?", it ended with Hope looking forward to the next 4th.

Eden and Cory arrive and immediately find a place among the spot that Jewell and gang picked out, settling in with Sapphire and Evelyn and Hope. Eden has her new wings* poking over the low back of her tank top and out of her bikini. She tries not to hit anyone with them while spending the day in and out of the water, and joining everyone for games and fun on the sand. Eden ate her way through all the different foods, and she and Cory tasted every alcoholic drink there was on offer too before enjoying the fireworks!



*Pictured wings are suggestive, but not exact.

Mark and Grace arrived together with a handful of other gypsies. They spread out colorful blankets and pitched a couple of canopies for protection from the sun's rays. They stayed all day, partaking in games, splashing in the waves, and curling up together to watch the fireworks.

Grace, who is originally from the UK, was doing the patriotic thing for her man anyway by wearing a red bikini and blue earrings, but she still had a Union Jack temporary tattoo plastered prominently on one arm. She could be found making frequent trips to the food tables through out the day.

Shar had no idea what the holiday was about, but hey! Free food, booze, and fun in the sun? Count her in! She'd spend the day enjoying all the goodies, games and water that she could.

Sira would show up early in the morning and leave long before the fireworks. She'd partake a little of the food, mostly any fresh fruit around, and some drinks, but she'd avoid most of the crowd.
