4th of July with gita

Make your firework viewing party even more wow-worthy

Imagine enjoying a first-rate firework display without dealing with crowds, the headache of finding parking, or the struggle of lugging around all the stuff (the blankets, the snacks, the folding chairs, the bug spray...). gita the following robot can help with all that and more—it’s the ultimate firework viewing-party sidekick:

  • gita’s IGLOO® cooler will keep all your beverages and food cool for an entire day of celebrations—and beyond.

  • You don’t have to worry about lugging around the folding chairs with gita following along—its pop-up lid allows it to carry taller items. 

  • Once the sun goes down it can get cold, fast. Making sure everyone has their own blanket to wrap up in is easy with gita carrying the load. 

  • You can lock gita up with the mygita app so you can watch the firework display without feeling like you have to keep one eye on your stuff.

The best-kept secret watching spots:

Hang out on the grass while you wait for the fireworks to begin and all gather round the tablet at 10pm to watch the show together (gita will make sure it stays charged with its interior USB charging station).
