No questions asked; this is where a Birmingham resident wants to spend the 4th of July. Well, at least the evening part of it. Day can be spent at a cook-out, or the river or lake, or any number of fun locales. But around 7- 8 p.m. it's time to stake out your spot for Thunder on the Mountain. My short video doesn't even serve this fireworks show justice. Thunder on the Mountain takes place at the foot of Vulcan on Red Mountain and can be seen pretty much anywhere you can see the Vulcan sclpture. That's lots of places, but some of the best spots are Regions Field, Railroad Park and The Club, although people do watch this show from overpasses and TV stations and all kinds of unlikely places. Just bring your comfy things like drinks, snacks and blankets and turn your car radio to one of the local stations that plays the soundtrack. If you've got those things and a good view, you're set.
