How Much SWLA Residents Spend On 4th Of July
We held a Facebook poll asking SWLA how much and what they will spend their money on for Independence Day. Here are the results.
The majority of Southwest Louisianans will spend less than $100 to celebrate the Fourth of July tomorrow. But 1 in 10 people will spend over $500, and 1 in 50 will drop more than $1,000. Yep, a stack!
And here's what people say they're spending the majority of their money on . . .
1. Food, 54%.
2. Alcohol, 14%.
3. Fireworks, 14%.
4. Travel, 8%.
5. Patriotic items, 2%.
Yes, that means 28% of Southwest Louisianans are putting most of their Independence Day cash into fireworks or booze. Funny I thought alcohol would've been #1.
And ironic if you stop and thank about it, because booze and fireworks never mix!
Have fun and be safe tonight...u need your fingers and eyes!
