(Macy's Fireworks Celebration)

Events are the lifeblood of a society. They are occasions that gather people together united in a common theme, cause or celebration. Events bring people together to pay tribute to their heroes, to raise awareness of a cause or to witness history in the making. Events can be as simple as a child's kindergarten graduation or as dramatic as the Super Bowl. It doesn't matter what your preference is or even if it is constantly evolving. What does matter is that you are "experiencing" something that will give you great satisfaction and a lifetime of memories.
