Here is the list we posted Monday of the parades and fireworks going on in the neighborhood Wednesday, July 4.

But there are a couple of other things happening for Independence Day in the ‘hood.

Good Records is having a sale. Everything in the store is 20 percent off, from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesday.

And the Libertine has an eating contest. The Brass Knuckle Corndog Beatdown sounds intimidating. It starts at 7 p.m., and it’s free to enter. The winner gets the brass knuckles trophy and a $100 gift certificate. Second place wins a $50 gift certificate. And third place wins $25 in quarters.
