Puzzled how or if a decision was made to dramatically change how fair fireworks are displayed. After several decades of watching Fair Fireworks from my carport, I miss not being able to this year. They have been further 'East' I would say, and are only shooting half the usual height. I kept thinking, well, I'd be able to see the finale, as the boom, boom climbing ladder would be displayed. Huge disappointment...even the final few that would have normally been quite high, were a pathetically short wasted effort.
It just seems for zthe giagantic expense, it was a nice to share with residents who are sometimes bothered with the fair. Sorry that's no longer the case...even in main part of town along Main/Santa Rita Safeway area. They were nice and high and visible last year.... pretty much sound only this year. Just askin...
Maybe they'll get 'em up next week.
