The 4th of July holds a special place in my heart. I grew up in a small river town where we had our own drive-in restaurant and a water ski team who put on shows for us as we sat on the bank of the river, enjoying an ice cream cone. Across the street from the drive-in and river was a huge park and that's where the entire town would congregate every 4th of July to watch the fireworks launch over the river.

Every year there would be a few vendors walking around with sparklers and noisemakers and I wasn't ever allowed to get one. I come from a family with seven kids and money was tight, so I understand now why it just would have been too expensive to let each of us pick out a toy that we probably would forget about a week later.

I don't even remember if 3D fireworks glasses were a thing when I was a kid, but they've been around at least for the past couple of years. I know this because I went to a 4th of July baseball game a couple years ago and treated my inner kid to a pair.

If you've ever wondered what fireworks look like through those special 3D fireworks glasses, you're about to find out!
