In previous years, we would all be at a park a few blocks from here to watch fireworks. It was far from the action, but we could see it all and who needs to fight the crowds?
This year? Well, as we just discovered barely more than an hour ago, those fireworks have been cancelled this year. There’s still another display, but it’s across town, and being carless, we could never get there in time–not even the buses can run quickly enough.
Fireworks on TV this year (which is fine by me, since I’m not that enthusiastic about them). My wife and son are terrible disappointed.
